Bass Family News
Greetings from the Bass family in Peru! We pray that each of you had a blessed Christmas season! We also pray that this new year might bring you many opportunities to serve our Lord in your home, in your church, and in your community!
We were blessed to have a busy Christmas and New Years! We had many guests with us during this time! Not only was Becky’s mom, Lana Whaley, able to be with us, but we were also pleased to host Bob’s mom and stepdad, Marlon and Terry Epperly. Additionally, Becky’s sister and brother-in-law, Tim and Barb Whatley, fellow missionaries in Peru, along with their seven children and their families spent several days close to us. The Lord blessed us with many special moments with family and friends, as we hosted several special activities, which included Colton’s third birthday party.
Ministry opportunities have kept us wonderfully busy, as well! We’ve been able to visit several area churches lately, and share with them our burden and plan to help reach Peru’s victims of abuse and human trafficking with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Most often we attend one church close to us, where we have been able to be involved in several ways. Bob filled the pulpit there and other churches, when the pastors had to be out of town. Becky was blessed to speak at a ladies meeting. Colton attends the kid’s program, whenever we are in town, and has made several friends! Also, the church came to our home for a special Sunday service and lunch. We squeezed over 50 people into our home that day!
During December and January, we put some of our family to work! Marlon and Terry Epperly own a handyman company in the Kansas City area. They have also served with CBM, Continental Baptist Missions, as missionary builders. Several months ago, we shared with them some of the construction needs of our current home, which will also serve as our ministry office. They committed to come to help us for six weeks to help remodel our kitchen, which we had to completely demolish due to the fact that the house had been completely abandoned. They also helped us begin the construction of our ministry office. They were a blessing and help during their visit. Due to time and a community noise ordinance, we were not able to finish both projects but are so grateful for what was accomplished during their visit.
