Update on Albert Chretien

Those of you who have been regular readers of my posts for some time, will remember the story of Albert and Rita Chretien who were stranded in the Nevada wilderness. Rita was found alive on May 6, 2011.

On September 29, 2012, Albert Chretien's body was found by elk hunters, 11 kilometres from where the van had been stranded. He had been going in the right direction to find help, but the terrain was steep and wooded, and the snow was up to ten feet deep at the time. His body was found intact with identification still in his pocket.

Thank you to all of my readers who have prayed for this family. They are thankful that his body has been found, they know what happened to him, and they can have closure, but I know that they would appreciate your continued prayers as they go through this emotional time.
