The baby will be blessed by the member birth father. I'm wondering what is the best way to handle this?
- I could create the blessing certificate in MLS. This will create a new membership record in our ward, which I must then transfer to the parents ward.
- What if the record is already created in the home ward? For members of my ward, I try to create a child of record as soon as possible rather than waiting for the blessing to occur. I then print the certificate when the blessing occurs.
- Should I request the home ward create the record for the child? Is it possible to create a blessing certificate for an existing child of record outside of my unit?
- I believe the certificate must be generated in the unit where the blessing takes place, in order for the presiding Bishop to sign it; is this correct?
