Sixteen-year-old Hannah Anderson’s safe rescue from the wilderness and return to her father caused a sigh of relief across America.

Her abductor might have believed nobody would ever find him on that Idaho mountaintop. The odds that the four horseback riders (Mike Young and his wife, Mary; Mark John and his wife, Christa) would be visiting the lake when young Hannah was there are above astronomical.

Considering the observation skills and real-life survival skills these four had makes me wonder if Hannah’s rescue was anything short of divine intervention.
