Full Time Missionary listed in membership but in Organization

All of our Full Time Missionaries are listed in Membership and the Organization tap except for one.
His Dad is asking why? I recorded him in Membership some time ago but there is no editing under the FTM tab. Does the Stake or the Missionary Dept enter his name
into the Organisation tap under Full-Time Missionaries? We have a new stake clerk so I thought I would try this
Church forum first. (for fun :))

Ward Clerk

I believe there are three attributes of interest for a full-time missionary: Where the membership record is, what ward is listed as "departing from", and the ward financially responsible for the mission. Note that simply moving the membership records doesn't change the other two. I'm guessing he/she may have submitted their papers while a part of a singles/student ward and they are showing up there.

You'd probably have to contact the missionary department to make any changes.

However, if this change means removing them from a singles ward, you might want to give that some thought. I'd think the odds are the missionary would rather hear from members of that ward. <grin>

If I remember from when my daughters when a couple of years ago, they didn't show up in LCR as missionaries until left the MTC.
