Ed and Leah Bass bought a desperately needy home in a rural area of Central Texas. They had served together as bi-vocational ministers for 20+ years and were eager to transform their house into a dream home. Shortly after moving in, instead of standing side by side restoring their home, Leah was standing in shock and disbelief at Ed's graveside - a massive heart attack at age 55 having taken his life. Four days later, Leah lost her mother, too. She was left emotionally drained with a multitude of problems she did not have the skill, energy or finances to repair.
Over Spring Break 2009, Building Compassion invaded the Bass home in Alvarado, TX with more than 130 volunteers. Over 4,300 combined hours of labor resulted in a newly remodeled home, a practical expression of love that helped ease some of Leah's pain.
