After much prayer and fellowship, beginning on Monday, June 19, the church in Anaheim would like to recommend that the saints read two Life-study messages each week, beginning with the Life-study of Genesis. It is suggested that the reading of the two messages be divided among the six days on Monday through Saturday. Portions of messages can be read each day or on selected days (for example, on two or three days each week). Reading can be done in the printed Life-study volumes, on ministrybooks.org with or without a subscription, or in the 500 Life-studies app (currently in English only) with or without an internet connection. To help one another continue their reading and share their enjoyment, the saints are encouraged to form reading groups (for example, groups of twos and threes or the existing small groups) and communicate using WhatsApp, GroupMe, Line, Kakao Talk, Telegram, or other messaging app.
For the English-speaking saints, it is highly recommended that each saint install the 500 Life-studies app on his or her smartphone (see 500lifestudies.org/mobile-app for more information). A reading schedule can be created in the app to read the two messages on specific days of the week or by reading a certain number of pages each day, and reminders can be scheduled in the app. If you need help installing the app and/or creating a reading schedule, consult one of the saints in your small group or someone who was trained in the afternoon workshop held on June 10. Recorded speaking about the burden for reading the Life-studies and a video tour of the app can be found at 500lifestudies.org.
Saints who need or prefer to read in Chinese, Korean, Spanish, or Vietnamese should consult the leading ones in their language for further details.
