Can seven days of love and other focused activities really make a ripple to change the world? We think so. See Mindy’s story in the Kansas City Star about the upcoming Seven Days event.
On September 25th, Mindy was interviewed by Pastor Adam Hamilton at the Church of the Resurrection. The Church was hosting a Leadership Institute. This video is the interview. Thank you for your continued support and prayers for our family and others who are walking through grief.
Reat and Popeye are no longer with us, but that doesn’t mean their legacy can’t live on. The Boy Scouts of America were listed as one of the recipients of memorial gifts. “They told us that they were building this BB gun range, they already started building the BB gun range, and that it was about to be finished — and that seemed extremely appropriate,” Mindy said. “We all agreed at the same time that the BB gun range would have meant a lot to Reat.” Reat would have been an Eagle Scout in a few months — the highest rank that a young man can earn in Boy Scouts.

A group of 20 boys, each around 8-years-old, listened to a brief safety presentation, don safety goggles, and with the help of their fathers and other adult leaders, open fire at paper targets with “BB gun” rifles shooting BBs. They’ll be just some of 2,600 scouts to use this brand-new facility this year. The “Reat Griffin Underwood Memorial BB Gun Range” is located at the Boy Scouts of America’s Camp Naish in Bonner Springs, Kansas. The range allows 8-year-old Bear Scouts a chance to learn firearms safety and shooting skills under supervision, with BBs. The dedication ceremony for the range will be on July 18th. Read more here.
Mindy met with Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star to share this Father’s Day story.

It has been two months since a gunman opened fire on innocent people at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park. Police dubbed it a ‘hate crime,’ something family members of the victims are now using to spread a message of love. Fox 4 KC did a segment to show how we are spreading the message that Faith and Love win over Hate. See the video here.
Fox News posted an article about Reat’s national anthem performance at the MLB Royals game.
