Ward Members who served missions and where

Postby ironhorse2004 » Tue Feb 18, 2014 3:18 pm

Is there a way to create a custom query to show who in the ward served mission and where they served at? If this is possible how would one create it?

You can create a custom report:
  1. In MLS, go to Reports/Forms > Custom Reports
  2. Click Add Report (in upper right corner)
  3. Give your report a name and optional description
  4. Click the Add Criteria button.
  5. Choose Mission Country; set the Compare Operation to "has a value"
  6. Click Next
  7. Check the boxes by Mission Country and Mission Language
  8. Click Save, then Close
  9. To run the report, click on the report name
Note that membership records only retain information about the mission country and language. There's no way to know precisely in which mission within the country they served.

Hummm, thanks for the help. I thought I looked on Sunday if you could query by Mission Country. I will look again, must have been a over site. Thanks!

This is a very useful and important tool as we help in Hastening the Work.

There is much more to the story, but we recently needed someone to help the missionaries teach a person from Indonesia. I did the report from our ward and didn't find anyone, but we did find a member in the stake who served there and actually interprets General Conference every six months.

This is just one of many experiences we have had that confirm to us that the Lord is watching and actively helping our efforts.
