These meals are intended to be used in situations that require swift action. 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 n...

I works for me now. Both the embedded and LDS Maps show the entire mission boundary where the missionary is serving.
Great job!

Right or wrong, I've taken a different approach in the past and only printed those that I thought were needed (anything to lesson the burden on the bishop), and it never caused an issue. I figured those who wanted all their children's statements would ask for them.

My experience is the same as mrrad's. I assume electronic donations to CHQ are handled the same as "in kind" donations. In this case, the only donations that will "show up" in ward records are donations to ward missionary, and they won't indicate where they came from. In regards ...

Thanks. I'm interested in any issues users might be experiencing with the maps (long response times, maps tiles or boundaries not displaying, etc.). I figured this would be an appropriate place to post the maps-related problems as directory is using the beta version of maps. I assume by "ward ...

you can have companionships who come from any quorum, and they can teach any household in the ward, regardless of the quorum/group affiliation of any members of that household. So there is no need to move members into different quorums/groups just because of home teaching reporting. I just wanted t...

I know of at least one instance - a missionary that was serving in my ward at the time. In his case, he entered the MTC several months before his 19th birthday. There was no special reason for him to serve earlier, he just didn't want to wait until age 19 and decided to give it a try. His bishop was...
