member baptized two days before they turned 8

Postby thunt11 » Thu Mar 31, 2016 8:07 pm

Hey question for anyone. I have a newly baptized member that birthday is March 10 but was actually baptized on March 8. I did not notice the dates until MLS gave me the prompt that the child must be 8 years old to put in the baptism. It does not appear that there is a way to override this item. Does anyone have any ideas on the matter?

Thanks,

I'd suggest pointing the bishop to Handbook 1: 16.1.10, under the heading "Ordinances That Were Performed before the Appropriate Age". It seems to outline your exact situation.

Actually upon further examination of the form I entered the interview date and not the actual baptism date. It all works fine I just need to look at my dates more closely.

*whew*. That wasn't going to be fun explaining to everyone.
