I am the Enrichment Leader. I was called about 2 months ago. In the past, enrichments were far and few between and numbers were counted on 2 hands or less. As I was set apart I remember specifically being counseled that I would spend time on my knees asking for the Lords help in this new calling.
I kneeled to pray that night. I asked the Lord to help me know what to do and to be an instrument in His hands to help the sisters come closer to Him through socializing together. I asked for 30-40 sisters to come to our first enrichment night that was quickly approaching.
One Sunday the teacher in Relief Society finished her lesson 20 minutes early! I thought it was my golden opportunity to question the sisters and get feed back. I wanted to know what they envisioned happening at enrichment and what they never wanted to do again... it turned into an all out brawl! I got some good ideas and I got sisters complaining very loudly as to how bad the enrichment has been in the past! I couldn't believe my ears, however in the midst of all of it one sister whom I had not seen before offered her husband to teach a self defense class.
I called that sister and came to find out it was the first time in 9 months that she had attended Relief Society! What were the chances that all this fell together...
Long story short, I just got back from enrichment tonight. 40 sisters showed up to our Asian themed potluck and learn self defense!!! The night was a total success and as I was driving home I couldn't help but be grateful to my Heavenly Father for how well His enrichment meeting went tonight. Decorations were beautiful, food was fantastic and the lesson was phenomenal!
So a little prayer, a little faith and any thing's possible.
