Renee has developed an especially good relationship with Sis. Schaumkel. For whatever reason, the two of them clicked. (Renee: It's the Polynesian connection and we both grew up in Hawthorne, CA. Who would have thought....) She has not received a lot of support from home, so Renee told her she would email her each Monday until she returned home. That way she would get some mail!
These departures are part sad because they are good missionaries but also part excitement to see how they put their missionary training to work in their "non-missionary" lives.
