I don't think THEY did, I think it was someone else who donated, another family relative, or someone who like the kid and wanted to help him on his mission, but the parents not knowing this continued to make their monthly $400 payments to the ward. Nor do I think they thought they were supporting the second son, these funds were all contributed before the second son ever left on his mission.
