Kidnapped missionary to attend 'Saratov Approach' movie screening in Prescott Valley

One of the real life stars of "The Saratov Approach" movie will be at two of the movie screenings Friday, Nov. 15, 2013 at Harkins Theatres in Prescott Valley, Arizona.

The public is invited to meet Travis Tuttle, one of the two missionaries kidnapped in 1998 and held for ransom in Russia. Tuttle will be holding a Q&A after the 6:20 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. show times.

THE SARATOV APPROACH is the extraordinary, untold story of Elders Travis Tuttle and Andrew Propst and their week-long abduction in Saratov, Russia. On what seemed like any other day during their two-year LDS missions, Elders Travis Tuttle and Andrew Propst are approached by Nikolai to meet a friend. But then the missionaries experience the unimaginable -- kidnapped, beaten, and held for ransom for nearly a week -- on the other side of the world in Saratov, Russia. While their family, friends and the world pray for their safe return, Tuttle and Propst are tested physically, emotionally and most of all -- spiritually.
