Getting 159 blankets and mattresses to the people was no easy task as everything had to carried in. Both men and women worked to bring the goods to the earthquake survivors.

Tenchet Village in Dhading District now has new, warm blankets as well as mattresses as the winter weather is now in full swing on that part of Nepal.
Renaissance Outreach Ministries teamed up with HIMS Nepal and Rev. Silas Tamang to bring 159 blankets to the people of the village who have been residing in temporary shelter since the earthquakes of 25 April and 12 May, 2015.
This Christian village was totally wiped out on 12 May when the second earthquake triggered a massive landslide that destroyed homes and farms, totally covering the land with rock.
Tenchet along with other nearby villages located toward Dhading Besi, the principle city of the district. Here they were able to construct temporary shelters along with putting up a makeshift church to worship.
The people lost everything in the earthquakes. One of their critical needs was warm blankets and mattresses. Everyone is sleeping on the cold ground these days, and with lack of mattresses, there is no insulation against the cold.
Rev. Jan L. Beaderstadt, president of Renaissance Outreach Ministries joined forces with Rev. Silas Tamang who is president of HIMS-Nepal, a local NGO that has been working in the mountains of Dhading District. It was his village that was totally destroyed.
Renaissance Outreach helped provide the funding for the mattress and blanket project. Rev. Silas Tamang was able to stretch the gift by finding some additional blankets for the people. With the extra funds, then mattresses could be purchased.
Renaissance Outreach gave its blessing to using some of the funds for mattresses and they were able to find free blankets from another source.
“The important thing was for these people to be warm,” noted Rev. Beaderstadt. “They have suffered so much, and now snow has been moving into the area. Their makeshift shelters are not insulated, as well as being drafty. They need all of the help they can get.”
Rev. Tamang has always been resourceful in helping the people of Dhading District. Born and raised in the mountains, he has spent his lifetime working to improve the lives of the people there as he shares the Gospel of Jesus.
This winter has been particularly cold with winter snows.
Money has also been pledged from one donor in Italy to start a library for Tenchet village. Right now, the village is working to obtain land to rebuild their village as their old location is no longer inhabitable.
Earthquakes in the Himalayas can release devastating landslides with boulders the size of a house. Whatever is in their path is destroyed. The land becomes unusable because there is so much heavy rock piled on top of the ground. All terraced fields were destroyed in the landslide.
