"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

It has been 6 months now since Dave was taken away from us.  It seems like forever to my sweet companion and I.  We know that trials can help us to grow in areas that we might need growth.  We know that God is with us constantly.  We know that he sends angels to watch over us.  But even knowing these truths it still is extremely hard being seperated from my forever companion.  Dave and I have learned from this situation that you can either be angry and mad all the time or you can try to make the best out of the situation.

Dave does try to make the best out of this situation.  And I am so proud of him for that. This last week Dave was so excited because someone new had come into his pod that was interested in learning about Aviation.  Since Dave has been imprisoned he has not met one person that really wanted to learn about flying.  But this last week he met a young man that wanted to learn more.  If anyone truly knows Dave, then they would know that his first love in life of course is his family and God and his next would absolutely be aviation.  This gave him a boost this last week as he was able to teach this young man how exciting aviation can be.

Ever since Dave was a little boy he enjoyed reading aviation magazines.  He even had little metal airplane toys that he would fly around the house and pretend he was a pilot. He always dreamed of being a professional pilot.  He worked really hard after high school graduation to obtain his pilots license.  After we were married he was able to accomplish many of his goals in aviation.  He obtained several ratings, licenses and two years ago he became a flight instructor.  It took Dave several years to accomplish these goals because he always put his family first before anything.  He made sure his family was taken care of before he would spend money on aviation.

I have asked Dave many times what he loves about flying.  I remember him saying that when he is flying he feels he is above the worries of life.  He feels closer to God because of the miracle of flight.

I am proud of Dave and the goals that he has accomplished in aviation.  He made goals and he went after them.  He teaches our kids the same philosophy today.  That you can become or do anything you want too.  You just have to put forth the effort and have the determination and heart and go after your dreams.  Dave will fly again, but for now he will have to borrow my wings to get through this turbulence that we are experiencing. 


  1. Dave Bundy is an example of the depth and breadth of injustice in the USA. He is 100% innocent of any crime and, in fact, he is the victim while the criminals go free.

  2. Your amazing wings are steadfast im so happy he has your to borrow. You are a mighty strong woman and Dave is tremendously blessed with you your beautiful family by his side. We love you all.

  3. God Bless you all. Have been 'in touch' since the middle of December, 2015, praying, reporting, supporting as I can. Love you all. GrGramLorrieColorado

  4. Sorry to private message you here, but I received an email that appears to be from you with a MaryLynn_Bundy@hotmail.com address. I had previously been in contact with you through your gmail address. Did you get a new email address? I just wanted to check so I don't respond to bogus emails reporting to be from you. I will respond once I hear back from you.

    Thanks for your time.
