We give thanks to God that yesterday, on August 19, 2018 at around noon, the body of James Anderson was recovered from the Yellowstone River near Springdale. Members of the Park County Sheriff's Office and Gallatin County Sheriff's Office responded immediately to a tip that was received from a fisherman. As stated by the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office, when unimaginable tragedy occurs, it reminds us of the important things in life like family and friends. We are truly blessed to live in a place where people genuinely care about each other, even when strangers. Please continue to keep the Anderson and Nielsen families in your prayers throughout the coming days, weeks and months.
