"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."
--Ezra Taft Benson

Telephone calls

Below is the website that we have to go through in order for our loved ones to call us from the Henderson Detention Center.  Before this ordeal, I never would have imagined how expensive it would be to stay in touch with your loved ones that are incarcerated. For a 15 minute phone call it is about $4.40.  If I was to talk with my husband for 45 minutes a day then it would cost me $13.20.  If I talked to him for 30 days then it would be $396.00 for the month. Oh yeah and don't forget about the lovely transaction fee. So with that fee it is probably more like $500.00 for the month and you thought your cell phone bill was high?

Who would have ever thought that talking to a loved one from a detention center would be so expensive.  I am grateful that I am able to talk to my husband but I also believe that they should not charge as much as they do.  They are definitely taking advantage of families and making some serious money.

Deposit Amount

Amount to Deposit:
( Min: $ 0.01 Max: $ 50.00 )           This is what I have a problem with this program.  First of all you can only add on 
$50.00 dollars at a time and then you automatically get charged $6.95 for Transaction Fees.
Transaction Fees:
Total Charges:
$ 6.95

Please continue to donate to all of the Political Prisoners families.  I know how important it is for them and their families to stay in touch with each other.  It is very important for us to stay connected with these men.  By being able to call we are able to uplift their spirits when they are down and they do the same for us.  Look at this picture below.  My husband loves to call home and talk with his children.  Our little girl who is now one years old always says da da on the phone and it makes this man cry.  He never gets tired of hearing her cute little innocent voice.  I will always make sure that my husband knows that he can call whenever he needs too.  His voice will always be heard in our home.  paypal.me/MarylynnBundy


  1. I am so glad you posted about this. I wanted to ask you about it. Do you have a Nevada number he can call because that makes it cheaper? If not I can help you set one up and link it to your current phone through google. Also if he can put money on the phone out of his commissary that gets rid of the 6.95 fee. Let me know if you would like any help with this

  2. Thanks Savanna. Actually my mother in law has a nevada number and they charge her more. Isn't that crazy? I never thought of him putting it on his commissary. That is a great idea. I will tell him to do that. Thank you so much.

    1. Her Nevada number might not be considered local according to the zip code in Henderson. I had a Salt Lake number but it was not considered local to Ogden so I had to change it to a Ogden number. Hopefully it all helps with costs it's still not cheap but cheaper. We are praying for your family a lot.

    2. Thank you Savanna. We appreciate all of your prayers. I have always loved your family. I will look into getting a Henderson number.

    3. Your welcome! If you need any help let me know but you can start by using google to search google voice. It's free and can be linked to your phone and number you have now :)
