I'm needing help and cannot seem to connect with anyone. I have paid the money for a beginning day (75.00) and cannot see where I received any info on it, other than a printout that I paid. I have tried to re-register and cannot remember the password used. I have tried to register again and only come up with the page to choose which plan do I want to pay for. Is there someone, somewhere I can go to solve this. I really would appreciate any help I can receive. Thank you in advance

I have purchased a consultants 4 day ticket and since purchasing it I am now serving a CSM in a VROC mission and would like to purchase a ticket for myself at the 18Mission rate and transfer my 18consultant ticket to my wife. She is also a consultant in the Meridian East Stake, Meadowlark Ward here in Boise. We are both retired and considering our financial situation it would be a great help if you would allow the transfer of the ticket already purchase to Skay Woodings and I will purchase another ticket at the reduced rate for Church Service Missionaries. Thank you for your understanding.
Sincerely
Charles Woodings
