During her years in Paraguay, one of Renée's main ministries was Christian education, and she and her husband served as Co-General Directors of the Jack Norment Camp in Caacupé.  They were also the co-authors of a book entitled Campamentos...Una Experiencia Educativa, which drew upon their experience as camp directors, giving many ideas and examples of educational activities that could be used in a camp setting.  

Renée will be remembered and greatly missed by her husband John, and their three children Miguel, Nicholas and Yvette.  A memorial service will be held in her honor on Saturday, May 19 at the Jack Norment Camp in Caacupé.
