No missionary list when donating via "other ward"

Postby John_Reinhard » Fri Mar 25, 2016 12:56 pm

In preparation to give my mom instruction on how to donate to our daughters mission via the online form, I followed the instructions in the help site and clicking the Missionary in Other Ward or Branch link I entered our ward number; at that point the only option is ward missionary fund. Are individual missionaries supposed to show up when contributing via Missionary in Other Ward or Branch-- like they do if I donate to a missionary in my ward?

Yes. Does your daughter show up when you go to donate? The sub-account may not show up until they're actually in the MTC or on their mission.

If you check the regular dropdown under Ward Missionary and your daughter is there, then those who are in other units will see her name when they enter your unit number from outside of your ward. As russellhltn said, her name will normally show up fairly close to the time she enters the MTC.

If you are not yet seeing her name, no one else will see her, either.

Thanks for the replies. It turns out that I wasn't seeing the missionaries in the drop down menu because I entering the stake number by mistake instead of the ward number.

I am glad you got that figured out. Yes, you definitely want to be using the ward/branch unit number instead of the stake/district.

How do I find the ward number for a ward outside my stake?

You can call up that ward and ask them. Or you can ask your clerk to look it up.

You can use the "Meetinghouse Locator". Once you find the unit using Meetinghouse Locator and it is selected look in the URL (the browser address). The end of the URL will look like "&id=ward:XXXXXXX". The Xs represent the unit ID number. There may be as few as five and as many as seven digits.
