  1. Don't bring the beard issue to a non beard topic. Hold on, I just did... I'm sorry. :-P Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  2. Patience, patience, is still showing only two languages for me, Albanian and Arabic... Edit, just realized is in English with subtitles. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  3. This is all i'm getting: "Sorry, there was a problem retrieving the files. Try again later." Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  4. Today is a holiday in USA, could that be the reason why is not up yet? Funny how last night on a section of our family worship, we showed or daughters the importance of being patient from the last month's Awake, I think I can use that advise right now... "In a long-term study, researchers gave a group of four-year-old children one marshmallow each and told them that they could either eat the one marshmallow right away or wait a brief period and receive another marshmallow as a reward for their patience. Later in life, as high school graduates, the children who showed self-control at four were doing better than their counterparts emotionally, socially, and academically." Maybe, if I'm patient, I'll get the whole bag of marshmallows tomorrow morning! Nooooooo, I can't wait! I want it now! :'( Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  5. I would like to see a widget for the videos, allowing you to choose a theme for each widget by type. I would particularly like to have widgets for the following types: Tools for the ministry. Become Jehovah's friend. Whiteboard animations. I believe those would be handy in the ministry. In the meantime, I'm using a video player called SR player from the Google Playstore. It looks like this: Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  6. http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2005606Paragraph 20: 20 What a joy it is to serve God along with a worldwide brotherhood that displays such love! Those who have the law of the Christ in their heart enjoy a priceless possession in this loveless world. Not only do they enjoy Jehovah’s love but they also delight in the strong bond of love in the brotherhood. “Look! How good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!” Though Jehovah’s Witnesses reside in many nations, speak many tongues, and represent many cultures, they enjoy religious unity that is without equal. This unity brings Jehovah’s favor. Wrote the psalmist: “There [amid a people united in love] Jehovah commanded the blessing to be, even life to time indefinite.”—Psalm 133:1-3.

  7. Hello sister Samira and everyone that sees this amazon charity support opportunity as a bad combination of commerce and donation, I didn't look at it that way, now I do and I agree with you. I have and will continue to do it the old fashion way. http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/bl/r1/lp-e?q=1 corinthians16:2 It is clear to me that it is "Amazon" and "not me" donating a 0.5% of my purchases to the Watchtower. Therefore, I have no plans to diminish the budgeted resources that me and my family donate to Jehovah's organization and their faithful servants. At this moment, I haven't received any information from amazon stating that I need to select a different charity, therefore I still don't know if the Watchtower is accepting this donations or not, until then, I will keep them as my choice. The Watchtower is the only organization that I know, where donations are used properly and effectively. Now to the reasons why I think this is a bad idea. After reading some of the replies, I have been enlightened to see that this could turn into a marketing strategy that amazon uses to get more businesses and therefore be conflicting with our organization. Perhaps more brothers will do what I did and get excited about our organization getting more funds to further the Worldwide Work and construction of new Kingdom Halls and without even realizing it, start campaigning and be unpaid Amazon marketing agents, like me :-( I could imagine brothers telling other brothers to get this from this seller instead of this other seller because this one supports our organization, not good. I'm just not going to promote their business in the basis of being good for our organization. That's definitely not a good mixture. With that being said, I'm sorry that I started this thread, it was not my intention to promote this company. I love you all brothers and sisters. http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/l/r1/lp-e?q=Psalm+133:1 Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk
  8. I searched for "Watchtower" see attachment. Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk
  9. About AmazonSmile: http://smile.amazon.com/gp/charity/about.html/ref=smi_se_uds_learn_saas Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk
  10. I'm wondering the same, from my perspective, I don't see a conflict, but I'm not in charge and therefore my view of all aspects of accepting donations in this manner is limited. I do buy stuff on amazon in a regular basis and would love to see even a small percentage of that money going to support our "society" I mean, Jehovah's organization :-) .

  11. I wasn't replying, I was actually creating the new topic. Please keep in mind that I'm doing this from Tapatalk, on a mobile device. As explained before, it returned with an error and then it kept me in the editing page, there was no impatience here , I actually did some paperwork and let the phone sit while it was supposedly creating the topic, only to find out there was an error message. Anyhow, what do you guys think of this opportunity to donate more to Jehovah's organization? Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk
  12. Moderators, I'm seen duplicates, can you please delete and leave only one. When I was posting it, it returned with an error saying that it wasn't able to connect with the server. The third time it showed that the new topic was created successfully. Thus why there are three of these right now.... Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk
  13. Dear XXXXXX XXXXXXX, Amazon will now donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases when you shop at AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com). We will reach out to Watchtower Bible And Tract Society Of New York Inc to ensure it is ready to accept donations from Amazon. Amazon smile is the same Amazon.com, same prices, same stuff. Is just a way of supporting a charity of your choice every time you buy something from amazon. You just have to make sure you use smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com Please let all brothers and sisters that you know, that buy stuff on Amazon.com on a regular basis. This is another way we can support Jehovah's organization. [ Note to self: Make sure you don't use this as an excuse to buy stuff that you don't need! ;-) ] Amazon told me that they will contact the Watchtower to make sure they are ready to start receiving donations from them. If I get a reply saying that the Watchtower decides to reject the donations coming from Amazon, I will update this topic and ask a moderator to delete it. Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk
