Two Warren County natives have seen first-hand the devastation a series of earthquakes has had on Nepal.
The two will be flying home Friday after spending a week in a remote Nepal village. They've been helping villagers rebuild after last week's devastating second earthquake and teaching the villagers how to help themselves.
Tony Rheaume and Lucas Hughes are members of the Woodburn Baptist Church. Church members, family and friends helped fund their relief mission Baptist Medical and Dental Mission International.
The group had to drive five hours out of Kathmandu and then walk another three through the mountains just to reach the village of about 100 people.
"When we came through the mountains, we were real high up so when you looked down it was beautiful, lush land with terraced fields and even aqueducts cut through the mountains," Rheaume said, "It was beautiful until you got close and then, from the front, the houses look perfectly fine, you go to the back of the house and the walls are all gone."
