QUEENS, N.Y. The Relief Society presidency of the newly organized Queens New York Stake sponsored a community event at which accomplished members of the Church shared their expertise in various fields in a "Community Self-Reliance Workshop." Members in such fields as financial planning, employment and education, emotional and spiritual well-being, physical fitness and nutrition, and emergency preparedness led workshops in which participants were challenged with new thoughts and felt an enlivening spirit.
"One of my colleagues, who is very successful in the finance industry, attended and was impressed by the spirit she felt," said Veronica Carrera, second counselor in the stake Relief Society presidency. "She asked if she could take the missionary discussions."
