I am having trouble with the CA/afp link

Postby brianjbarlow » Sun Oct 05, 2014 8:37 am

I am trying to logon to the page to fill out a letter for my restoration of blessings, however the link lds.org/ca/afp/member link brings up the message "Requested resource not found". My bishop brought me the steps to log in but I can't get the link to work.

My LDS account is working great, and I'm able to log onto that without any problems.

I am wondering, does my bishop have to enable that site for me on his end? Or is it something wrong with my computer? I have MacOs Maverik and have tried safari, opera and chrome. I also tried it on my iPad and iPhone to no avail.

Thanks for any help.

Are you able to start at https://leader.lds.org and go through the menu system there rather than using the link provided?

No looks like that one says access denied.

Access to that site is limit to those with certain callings. The general membership does not have access.

Have you tried finding your answer on the LDS.org Help Center page or the LDSTech wiki?

I'd think your LDS Account has to be linked to your Membership Record Number (MRN) in order for anything like that to work. I'd suggest going to ldsaccount.lds.org and on the left side select 'membership'. Make sure the number shown is your membership number.

I do have my membership number linked to my account, so I'm thinking the Bishop needs to enable the access for me or something. He explained to me he has never used the online way of doing this before. Is there any Bishops on here that have maybe had to enable access to that page for someone?

Thanks for all the replies by the way, I am very grateful for everyone's help thus far.

Seems logical. I'm assuming a rebaptism is involved. I'd think that would have to be processed. I wonder if that was done.

Ask your bishop to check at the site and see if there is a way for him to allow you access based on your membership number. (You will have one because you have already been baptized if you are applying for a restoration of blessings.)

Suggest to the bishop that it may be similar to the missionary application site where he has to allow a potential missionary to begin an application.

If your bishop is not able to find a place to do that, he should check with the stake clerk or stake president for further instructions.

I'm not a bishop, but I really doubt that there's any way for you to have access to any part of the Leader and Clerk Resources. I think your bishop is making an incorrect assumption about who has access to that site. You'll just need to write the letter and give it to him, and he'll need to submit your letter with the application.

I am having the same trouble. It says I need to submit my MRN but when I do it says the account already exists. I also get the same "access denied" from the link the Bishop sent. I did write a letter and give it to the Bishop that was submitted, I then got the message there is an online part that needs to be done. I will talk to my Bishop tomorrow and let you know if there is something different that needs to be done.
