"The fight for freedom is God's fight.
So when a man stands for freedom he stands with God.
And as long as he stands for freedom he stands with God.
And were he to stand alone he would still stand with God.
A man will be eternally vindicated and rewarded for his stand for freedom."

Bundy Benches



We are grateful for the support that we have received regarding our fundraiser to help bring our dad home.  We have sold over two hundred benches.  Our son couldn't have accomplished this without the help of family and friends. Helen Keller said, "Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much."  Please continue to work together for this great cause to help with Dave's legal fees by helping to spread the word about the benches.  Too some of you a bench might not mean a lot but to our little family these benches are a way that we are able to help bring our dad home.  Dave means everything to our family.  Our hearts hurt every night we are apart from each other.  All we want is for our family to be reunited again under one house. Our fifteen year old son is making these to help bring his dad home and help with family expenses.  Every bench that is sold or every donation that is given is one step closer for our family to be together again.  Please help us bring our dad home.

We will be selling these benches for a minimum donation of $60.00 dollar donation if picked up in Millard County or a $75.00 dollar donation delivered out of Millard County.  If you want the brand on the bench then we are asking for a 100.00 donation for the bench.  They are very sturdy benches that are made with high quality products and will look great on your front porch or even in your home.  We have them available for pickup in Millard County, Utah or once we have a big enough order we can deliver them to Mesquite, Nevada, Saint George, Utah, Springville, Utah and Lehi, Utah. We wish we could ship them all over America but we know the cost of shipping would be too expensive.  So for those that don't live close enough to buy a bench but would like to help this young man earn money for his dad then you can make a donation that will go towards purchasing the wood to make the benches. You can make donations through my paypal link and for those that want to purchase a bench please email me your name and contact information or you can put the information on paypal and we will get your bench made as soon as possible.  My email address is marylynnbundy40@gmail.com.  Our paypal link is paypal.me/MarylynnBundy.  Or you can mail a check to PO Box 814, Delta, Utah 84624

Quick Update

I didn't realize that it has been a whole month since I have last blogged.  We have had a really busy month filled with lots of up and downs and I have found that at the end of the day I am tired both physically and emotionally.  I have struggled to write my thoughts down but tonight I feel like I need too give an update on our family and this trial. 

This last month we spent several different occasions supporting the other Political Prisoners who were in trial.  We never went inside the courtroom but instead stood outside the Federal Court house holding up signs and spreading the truth.  We felt honored to stand by these patriots who also stood by our families.  The scriptures teach us that, "the second greatest commandment is too love thy neighbor as yourself" and "carry each other's burdens."  We were grateful to be there supporting these men that were on trial.  The outcome of a hung jury was not exactly what we were hoping for but we were grateful that the jury could see through the lies and deceit that was presented by the Government. 


Dave has been staying busy in his pod doing a lot of reading.  He usually stays up late to read because that is when it is the most quiet in the pod.  Dave is also in the same pod as his dad, Cliven.  That has been nice because he has someone close to talk too. Dave has lost over seventy pounds.  A lot of the food that they feed them in the detention center is all soy base.  Dave doesn't complain much and is grateful but there is just certain foods that he can not stomach.  He misses is family greatly.  He wants nothing else but to be home with his wife and children.  And we also want nothing more than to have our husband/dad home where he belongs. 

This last week the prosecution filed a motion stating that they have decided to retry the first group again.  They are also asking that the next group which includes Cliven Bundy, Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Ryan Payne and Pete Santilli be pushed back until November.  This was devastating news to all of the men.  The men were ready to go to trial last year.  Then they were all ready in February for trial and now some of the men have no idea when they will go to trial.  Dave's group will not go to trial until everyone else has been to trial.  So if the judge rules on this motion by the prosecutors then Dave will not go to trial until 2018 or later.  Our lawyer in May of 2016 told the judge that he would be ready for trial within 90 days.  But now Dave has been in jail for over 430 days with no pre trial release and no trial date.  This is heartbreaking for our family.  The government does this too people on purpose to break them down.   They want to break these people and their families so they will take a plea deal.  How sad that our government does this to good American people. I can't even imagine waiting another year before my husband goes to trial.  It crushes my heart to think he will have to stay in jail until his trial.  We pray every night and day that the Lord will intervene soon and help our dad come home.

We are so grateful that we can talk every night with Dave and have family prayer.  It definitely is the highlight of our day.    My oldest son and I have been busy making and selling benches.  Dave is so grateful to our son who is helping our family out financially.  He is very proud of him.  We are grateful to all of you who continue to bless our family with prayer, letters, service and donations.  Dave is only able to make it through each day because he knows that his family is being taken care of by angels.  Please continue to pray and support all of these men.  I know that God will not leave us but instead will wrap his arms around us and help to lighten our load.  God bless you all.



For those that are interested we will be making and selling these benches for one more month.  We are asking for a minimum donation of $60.00 dollar donation if picked up in Millard County or a $65.00 dollar donation delivered out of Millard County.  They are very sturdy benches that are made with high quality products and will look great on your front porch or even in your home.  We have them available for pickup in Millard County, Utah or once we have a big enough order we can deliver them to Mesquite, Nevada, Saint George, Utah, Springville, Utah and Lehi, Utah.

NOT GUILTY

Last week I was able to travel to Las Vegas to show my support for the men that are currently on trial and also my support for every Americans constitutional rights.  I was grateful that I could stand by these men and their families and also the rights of every American.  Monday was definitely a hard day in court.  There was a point in the day where several people came out of the court room feeling completely devastated and hopeless.  The judge was being completely biased and wouldn't allow the defense to call their witnesses.  I along with several others sat on the courthouse steps with our heads down and tears rolling down our faces.  For a small moment it felt like we had no hope and that we might not win this battle.  But then I was reminded by someone in the crowd, that all of these men are wonderful men who love their country and their families.  This person also reminded me that God has a greater purpose for all of these men.  We must live by faith and not fear.  We can never give up because these men did absolutely nothing wrong.   These men are not guilty of any crime. I know these men will be found not guilty and God will continue to use them as a light for others. 

This speaks to my troubled heart right now. GOD is in control of my life...my life is NOT controlled by people's opinion of me. My God is stronger.:

I would just like to say how grateful I am to be able to have gotten to know all of the families and defendants that are involved in these trials.  We did not know who you were before or anything about your families.  We have grown to love you and your families.  We appreciate the good people that you are.  We are grateful for your example of loving your neighbor and loving this Country and God.  We will be praying for you, your families and this country this week that justice will prevail. 

 Thank you again for standing up for our constitutional rights.  Thank you for loving your neighbor and caring for others.  Thank you for all your sacrifices and for staying so strong this last year.  I am so excited for you to hear the words not guilty and for you all to be reunited with your families.  What a glorious day it will be.   GOD BLESS AMERICA!  GOD BLESS THE PATRIOTS!

Please Pray

The defense will start their case on April 3.  Please continue to Pray and stand by Todd Engel, Eric J. Parker, Scott Drexler, Richard Lovelien and Steven Stewart who are in this first trial.  Pray for their defense lawyers that they may be able to touch the jury by speaking the truth.  Pray for the jury that they will be able to see the truth.  Pray for the prosecutors and the judge that their hearts will be softened and they will have to tell the truth. Thank you to everyone for all of your support this past year. Please keep supporting these families and writing to them.  We know that God is ultimately in control and these great men will be found not guilty.  For updates on the trial starting next week look at John Lambs, Andrea Parkers or It matters how you stand facebook pages.  They do a great job reporting the truth.

Letter from Dave

My dear family,

I hope you are happy.  Heavenly Father has blessed us alot this past year.  Be sure to thank him often for these blessings.  Thank him especially for so many good people who love him and us and who have shared so much love with us this past year.

Keep having patience and faith that we will soon be reunited.  I don't know what his plan is for me and us but regardless of what it is I know we must continue being faithful to him at all times and having faith in our glorious reunion with each other in the future. I know I am not a very good writer, but don't ever doubt my love for you.  I constantly think of you all day, everyday.  My heart aches for you, each of you.  I cry to Heavenly Father daily in my prayers that he will reunite us soon.  I know he is aware and will reunite us on his time.  We must have patience and faith in him.  We are his children and he will take care of us.

I am so honored to be your father and husband.  You are all so good and faithful.  I am overwhelmed with gratitude for being able to call you my children and beautiful wife.  Be happy, stay strong, say your prayers, read your scriptures.  I'll love you for eternity.

Love Dad.

Dave is the sweetest and most kindest man.  We are so blessed to have him in our lives.  We are grateful for how strong he is being during this trial.  We can hardly wait for the glorious reunion that we will have when we are reunited as a family once again.  Please continue to pray for our family and all the other families that are involved in this trial.  Heavenly Father does listen to our prayers.  He gives us strength when we feel we can not endure another day.  This trial is extremely hard but we know that if we continue to have patience and faith in his plan that Dave will come back home to our family where he belongs.  We love you all and are thankful for your love and support.  We are indeed humbled and grateful for the kindness you have shown towards our family this past year.  God bless you all.

Birthday Girl

Dave has been feeling really down lately.  He has been feeling this way because he missed our little girls first birthday last year and then he missed her second birthday this last week.  All he could think about is that he is missing on loving this little girl, giving her kisses, tickling her and holding her.  So we decided to go to Pahrump to surprise him so he could see his little girl.  We bought her a happy birthday crown so she could wear it while she talked to him.  This visit really helped to lift Dave's spirits.  Our little girl was really cute she blew kisses to him, waved to him and at the very end said Daddy I love you.  He only could see here through the monitor but it really made his day.  I was glad that we went down to see him but at the same time it breaks my heart that they won't allow any contact visits.  I know Dave would have loved to give his little girl a hug and a kiss.  But you are only allowed contact visits if you have been convicted of a crime.  Our justice system has some major problems.   They say you are innocent until proven guilty but you are treated far worse then those that are found guilty and convicted.  Dave is in a maximum security detention center.  As we were leaving our daughter said, "why do they have all these rolls of barbed wire?"  All of the barbed wire have spikes on them and they are also electric.  Our daughter said, "there is no reason to have so many rolls of barbed wire because no man can jump over the first roll."  It is amazing to me that a 10 year old is smarter and more practicle then the leaders of our justice system.  It is so sad that in America we have more prisoners than any other country.  I thought we were the land of the free.  I pray everyday that the leaders of this country will wake up and realize that our Justice system is broken and needs to be repaired immediately.  Please continue to pray for the political prisoners.  I hope that the next time I go to Pahrump will be to pick up my husband to bring him home.

One year ago our life changed.

Today marks the one year mark that my husband was taken away from our family.  On March 3, 2016 my husband woke up early to take our nine year old daughter to catch the bus at school to go to a field trip to the State Capital.  I remember him giving me a kiss goodbye before he left.  He then headed to go to work on building our home.  We were so excited for our new home to be built.  We had waited six years to build a home and were so grateful that we were finally able to do it.

At 7:20 in the morning I received a phone call that has changed our life's forever.  One of the workers who were helping to build our home asked me where Dave was?  I said, "he went to work on the house."  The worker then said, "well they have blocked off the street and will not let us down the road."  I immediately started to feel sick.  I asked him who?  He said, "the FBI."  I dropped the phone and screamed for my dad to help me.  He drove me to our home and we saw the convoy of FBI agents leaving our property.  Several FBI SUV's stopped me from following them.  I got out of my car and asked them what they were doing with my husband.  They told me they were just doing their job.  I remember yelling and asking them why would they take my husband.  I was so upset that I threw up on the ground.  They told me that I could call their supervisor and discuss it with them and they drove away.  I slowly learned throughout the day that the FBI also picked up thirteen other men on that same day including Dave's brother Mel.  

 My husband was taken to Weber County Jail in Utah.  He was denied bail in Utah because they said he was a danger to the community and a flight risk even though our Mayor and County Sheriff welcomed him back into the community.  He was then flown to Henderson, Nevada.  There in Nevada our lawyer stood up and told the judge that Dave wanted his speedy trial rights and will be ready for trial in May.  The judge denied his speedy trial rights and scheduled the trial for February.  We tried for bail again in Nevada.  Once again Dave was denied because they said he was a danger to the community and a flight risk even though Dave had zero criminal record and our Sheriff was willing to monitor him on pre-trial release.  Dave was then moved to Pahrump, NV to a maximum security detention center.  We were preparing for trial in February when in December the judge informed us that Dave would not be going to trial in February but would have to wait for two other groups to go first before his trial would begin.  We have no idea when his trial will be.  Some say August and now some are even saying the first of next year.

My heart has ached every day since March 3, 2016.  I feel so sick inside to even right this post because it hurts to think he has been gone that long. Our hearts have been broken for a whole year now. Our children have not seen Dave physically in a year.  The home that we were so excited to build is covered in snow and our funds for our home have gone to pay for lawyer fees.   Dave has been deprived of so many moments with our family.  He has missed all of the children's birthdays and all the holiday celebrations.  He has been kept away from hearing our sweet baby talk and grow.  He has missed out on sports games, piano recitals, camping trips with is family.  These are moments and time that he will never be able to have back.
The children have changed also.  You can tell that they are trying their best to be strong but every child needs their dad around.  I find them crying at different times for their dad.  They miss throwing the football with him.  They miss working with him.  They miss his hugs and kisses.  They miss going on horse rides with him.  They miss him tucking them into bed.  I now sleep with at least three kids a night in my bed because these children miss their dad and do not want to sleep alone.

We pray everyday that this trial will be over soon.  Our children need their dad home.  I need my husband and best friend home.  All of the men that were taken need to be home to their families.  These are all good men.  They are patriotic men who love this country.  They are completely innocent of the bogus charges that they are being charged with. They do not deserve or do their families deserve what they are going through.  

Even though this trial is hard Dave and I are not giving up.  We have a very strong love for each other, our Country and God.  Our children love their daddy tremendously. We know that Dave is a hundred percent innocent.  He is definitely not the person that the government is portraying him to be.  He is a wonderful husband and caring father.  He is a great friend and neighbor to others.  He is our hero.

I want to also say that Dave and I are extremely grateful for those of you who have helped us this past year.  Words can't describe how thankful we are for your thoughtfulness toward our family during this difficult time.  We are grateful for your letters, donations, gifts, prayers and many more acts of kindness.  You have helped to lighten our load and share our burdens.  We love you all and are so thankful for all of you.  We wouldn't have been able to make it through this year without you.  We know that God is ultimately in control.  We know that he hears our prayers.  We know that truth will prevail.  Please continue to pray for all of these men and their families.  Please pray that we will never have to spend another March 3 away from our men again.  Pray that justice will be served and all these men will be found NOT GUILTY.  God Bless You All.

This is the picture capturing the joyful reunion when Dave was first taken overnight in 2014.  I am so excited for the reunion when he is found not guilty and returned home to our family where he belongs.
