In MLS from the menu bar select Other Resources > Church Audits > Ward Financial Audit. It is not necessary, however, to open MLS to open any of the audit checklists. They are PDF documents. On a Windows XP computer the path and file for the ward audit checklist is
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\LDS Church\MLS\data\forms\WBAud.pdf. On a Windows 7 computer the path is C:\ProgramData\LDS Church\MLS\data\forms\WBAud.pdf (Note this is a hidden folder).

The information for expense payments and FO recipient name is on page 8, column 4.

Unless you have an unusually large or overly "needy" ward, I don't see the need for preparing many meals for immediate use. When my wife was RS Pres, she always kept a ready meal in our freezer for whenever the normal VT/Compassionate Service resources couldn't meet an immediate need. She never needed more than one in reserve.

The thought occurred to me that there are many members who would be happy to make or purchase and deliver meals, but who cannot afford to do so. I know the whole idea of service is to give of your time, talents, and resources. There are some who have the time and talents, but not the resources to assist others in the ward. Would it be appropriate to reimburse these members using budget funds, assuming they can provide sales receipts for their costs?

I believe that would be a decision for the bishop to make, probably after a very interesting discussion with the ward council.
