The Saratov Approach DVD Review & Givaway DVD

About the movie:

On what seemed like any other day, Elders Travis Tuttle (Corbin Allred) and Andrew Propst (Maclain Nelson) are approached by Nikolai (Nikita Bogolyubov) to teach a friend. But then the missionaries experience the unimaginable—they are kidnapped, beaten, and held for ransom. While their families, friends, and the world pray for their safe return, Tuttle and Propst are tested physically, emotionally, and most of all—spiritually.

My Review: The Saratov Approach DVD


I did not know this story till I heard a little about it when in theaters last year. I waited to see it when my daughter was home. Watching it with my daughter was special. I recommend seeing it with tissues close by.

This is a moving story about two LDS Missionaries serving in Russia who were kidnapped and held for ransom.

The missionaries were targeted because they are from the US. They belong to a big church. I can understand why you can not pay kidnappers because more missionaries or other church leaders would than be kidnapped. I can also understand how tempting for the families to pay it.

I want to make comments about different scenes in the movie but I would be giving away too much of the story.

The faith in God the missionaries and their family showed was touching and uplifting.
How people of faith all come together to pray for them brought tears to my eyes.

This is a movie that I would watch again and again if I can get the DVD back from my girls.

My daughter and a bunch of her friends from her singles ward watched it and enjoyed it too. Yes tissues were used again.

I bought my DVD and I was also given a copy so it was suggested that I give my DVD away.

We haven't seen the movie yet because I don't want to scare my 19-year-old away from a mission. But I have heard and read good comments about it from those who have.
