We have the unit # but, as others on here have seen, it won't accept it as it is in another country. Is there another way to get money to a ward outside the United States (e.g., could we send a check to Salt Lake specifying what ward we'd like the money to go to)? Or are we just limited to donating to the general missionary fund?
The LDS website states specifically that you cannot donate funds online to a missionary of another ward if they are in a different country. I don't know if you could send the funds directly to Salt Lake and have them deposited correctly... Do you have any communication with any of the members from that Ward? Maybe you could send the money via Paypal or Western Union (WU is cheaper if done online) and they could just make sure it is allocated to the Missionary Fund for the ward?
I live in Mexico - out of curiosity, what ward do you need the money to go to?
