the call

Such an important day in Talon's life.

Talon has been called to serve in the Philippines, Bacolod Mission and reports to the MTC on January 27, 2010

This is such an important and EXCITING time in not only Talon's life but also in the lives of his friends who are also taking upon themselves the call that God has for them.
Grandpa Craythorne. He is a hero in so many peoples lives and these three boys are no exception. They look up to and admire Grandpa Craythorne so much and because of his example to them they will be better missionaries and stronger men throughout the whole of their lives.
Our family is forever. We are all so very excited for Talon and his decision to serve a mission and although we will miss him and anticipate the time when he will be back home with us we will be here cheering him on the whole way! We know he will be a strong and valiant servant of the Lord and that he will bring many people joy and happiness that will last for eternity through sharing the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

We love you Talon!

becoming ELDER Adams

What a wonderful day to spend together with family. On Sunday September 13, 2009 Talon was set apart as an Elder. It was a very spiritual and emotional experience for all of us as we came to realize just how close Talon is to being a missionary.

This is one of Talon's first steps (of many) to being Elder Adams in the mission field teaching all he comes in contact with about the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ. And as a family we want to share his experiences with you- as he grows stronger we hope to all grow stronger too and we also want to share with everyone the good news of the gospel! Talon will be a mission out in the mission field and we will all strive to be member missionaries here at home while he is away.
