Supporting missionaries from other countries

One of my nieces, a member of the Ilo Peru Stake, will be entering the MTC in Lima, Peru in early June, 2018 (about four weeks from now). We will be helping to pay some of her mission costs. We live in the USA. I went to check if the online donation system could handle this scenario, and was told that the ward unit number was either invalid or out of the country (the latter, of course). I would prefer to send the money through the Church's accounting systems, if possible. My alternative (it seems) is to wire money down to one of her less active (and less trustworthy) relatives for them to give it to the bishop of the ward down there.

Is there currently a solution for this within lds.org?

FYI, the stake and ward in question are: Estaca Ilo Peru (523631), Barrio LiberaciĆ³n (248142).

None that we're aware of. You may want to send it to the bishop's home address instead. Don't send it to the meetinghouse as (at least in the US) the meetinghouses don't take mail deliveries.

Have you asked your ward clerk to contact the Global Service Center and see if they have an option for this?
