Missionay donations on line

Postby randrus » Sat Dec 05, 2015 10:51 pm

Why can't I just donate to my wards missionay fund. As I tried it said I had to choose a missionary and then had a drop screen with no missionary names. However, I just wanted to give to the ward not an individual and the only way that I can do that is by turrning in a paper donation.

Odd. When I look, "Ward Missionary Fund" is one of the "individuals" I can choose from. Perhaps it's because there are no missionaries serving from your ward. In which case, your ward wouldn't really have a use for the funds and would end up sending it to other areas of the church

A couple months ago we were a new ward and our missionaries hadn't been transferred from our old ward so we didn't have any yet. But the Ward Missionary Fund entry still showed up even though we had no other entries. So I expect if that entry doesn't show it's either a bug or incompatibility with a browser.

In our case the Missionaries names show up all right. But, there are 2-3 names that show that have returned home. Why would this be? Could it be that their accounts are either over or under, and have not been 0 out? What needs to be done?

Yes, the account has to be zeroed and it may take some time before it closes.
