Mission Donations

Postby drepouille » Sun May 05, 2019 6:45 am

A sister missionary from my ward completed her mission about six months ago. I just noticed that a member of my ward recently donated $10 to the returned missionary's mission fund, which has had a zero balance since she returned. Which is the best option to resolve this?
  • Adjust the online donation, moving the $10 donation to the ward missionary fund.
  • Transfer the $10 from the missionary's account to the ward missionary fund.

Personally, I'd do this. Hopefully that would allow the system to see the account as inactive for 6 months. If you just transferred the amount, then it would no doubt be seen as "activity".

It would probably also be good to contact the member to thank him and let him know. It's possible he might want to apply it to a different category.
