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 thoughts: Before my son left on his mission to Chile in January, he told me he didn't think it would be a good idea for me to watch this movie. He thought that I would worry about him more than I already do.
When I saw that "The Saratov Approach" was available for review. I jumped on it. Could it be that I am experiencing a little bit of motherhood rebelliousness? It is possible.
I am glad that I watched this DVD. It is well done and illustrates the power of faith and prayer. Elder Tuttle and Propst were put in a difficult and dangerous situation. They could have given up at anytime, but they didn't. They continued to listen to the spirit and with faith helped each other through the ordeal. I loved watching how they related to each other and showed compassion for their captor.
This DVD didn't make me worry about my son any more or less. It did increase my faith that my son is watched over. It strengthened my spirit. I intend to show how rebellious I am by watching it again.
