A portable baptismal set was integral to the missionary in the Yukon. The missions of the far north offered certain obstacles. The majority of First Nations lived off the land in traditional camps. The missionaries were sent to preach the Christian Faith to First Nation peoples in remote areas. A large part of the mission was to travel to isolated communities to speak to the people. Missionaries traveled to the permanent or semi permanent settlements in remote and spread out areas to preach and baptise the converted. The travelling baptismal set allowed missionaries to bring baptism to the people. The original owner was Rev. M.W. Haldom.
