She was able to get her mother to the service! Her mom was so happy to see the smile on shays face that she started to cry! After she was baptised she ran over to her mom and gave her a hug! It was a great experience!

(I forgot to mention in Ty’s email that his picture with his NOT SO WHITE shirt he said this about it…”Hahahahaha! Those are my Katherine Shirts!  There is nothing we can do here.  The water turns them yellow and the dirt turns them red! HAHAHA!!”)

From Katherine Branch Facebook page: "We finally broke the attendance record we set when President and I arrived 18 months ago today we had 41 people take the sacrament between Katherine and Binjari meeting. 
A baptism yesterday and confirmation today and a record number of attendees. Wonderful just wonderful.
We also had Ann- Marie come today from
Ngukar ( at least I think that’s how you spell it ) Community, which is about 5 hours away from us but still part of Katherine Branch. She bore a wonderful testimony as did many others.
All in all a great weekend of spiritual highlights."
