Re: Tithing Settlement

This sounds more like a End of Year - Family PPI than it does tithing settlement. If Bishops want family PPI's then they should schedule them, if they want tithing settlement, then they should schedule that. You make a valid point but let me offer examples to defend my Bishop's approach: In Handboo...

Re: Tithing Settlement

I love tithing settlement. I came to that over many years sitting in the clerk's office while my bishop interviewed faithful members. A bonus is that I get to visit with them while they wait their turn. It is a great opportunity to get to know people - some of whom have not come to church in years, ...

Re: Send extra ward missionary funds to church headquarters

We have been getting requests for excess funds from our Area Authority roughly every six months for the last year and a half. We are instructed to keep a 3 month buffer for each missionary in the field, if those funds are available. Transfers to the stake are easy and I know there is at least one wa...

Re: Best paper stock for Ordinance Certificates?

Personally, I don't think future generations will be using paper at all in a while. Well, we don't use gold plates anymore but I'm sure glad Nephi thru Moroni did. ;) This does make one think about where technology is taking us and how to best preserve records for the future. And I appreciate the t...

Re: Bishopric Yearly Financial Training

One of our monthly stake bishopric meetings included Ward Clerks and Finance Clerks. The Area Auditor presented a discussion about the auditing process and gave a lot of tips about doing finances the "right" way. It was very good. I have been doing finances for years and learned a lot. Esp...

Re: Recover Visiting Teaching Assignments

That's what I thought but his wording suggested there might be another route. Thanks for the reply.

Re: Recover Visiting Teaching Assignments

I am resurrecting this thread because of a current need to get at some HT data dated prior to a complete overhaul of the HT districts and companionships. The OP mentioned that he could open a backup and print the information needed. Is there a way to do that without restoring the backup file to MLS ...

Re: Ward Members who served missions and where

This is a very useful and important tool as we help in Hastening the Work. There is much more to the story, but we recently needed someone to help the missionaries teach a person from Indonesia. I did the report from our ward and didn't find anyone, but we did find a member in the stake who served t...

Re: Quorum of the Seventy members

I consulted my Stake Clerk and got this resolved. At first, we weren't sure what his calling title was. So we looked him up in CDOL. Duh. :rolleyes:

The fix in this case is Out of Unit, Custom Calling, Area Seventy

Thanks for the reply

Quorum of the Seventy members

My search ability is not working well tonight. I have a ward member who is serving in one of the Quorums of Seventy. I assumed that his calling (in Organizations and Callings) would be updated by some higher authority but that hasn't happened. He now is on the Members Without Callings report. For th...
