Three Hearts movie

Movie Description

Graduating college senior, Cissie Graham Lynch, granddaughter of evangelist Billy Graham, takes on an internship at Samaritan’s Purse working with the Children’s Heart Project. This project is dedicated to saving the lives of children by providing medical procedures that aren’t available in many countries. Cissie is charged with supervising the arrival and surgeries of three Mongolian children suffering from fatal congenital heart defects.
But the task is not easy and filled with unexpected challenges. Cissie balances responsibilities as a newly married wife to a professional football player and her tasks with the internship. Meanwhile the Children’s Heart team turns to a Texas family who travels to Mongolia for the adventure of a lifetime to help bring the children to San Antonio for their surgeries. In Texas, two host families make sacrifices to care for these children and their mothers, while a team of doctors and nurses volunteer their time only to stare directly into the face of life and death. How far would you go to save a life?
It’s a fight for survival, a fight of faith, and a fight for a new life for these three hearts.
Bonus Features include: trailer, deleted scenes, and video clips about the Children’s Heart Project.

My Review:
A Samaritan’s Purse ® presentation with Cissie Graham Lynch and the Children’s Heart Project.
Cissie Graham Lynch, granddaughter of Billy Graham, and daughter of Franklin Graham  shares her life-changing internship with Children’s Heart Project, an arm of Samaritan’s Purse, which is most know for their Operation Christmas Child. Cissie shares the journey of bringing three Mongolian children back to America to Texas for life changing surgeries to correct deadly congenital heart defects. While one family travels to Mongolia to help bring the children and their mothers to the states, two other families host the children while they wait for their surgery and recover afterwards. Te extras include deleted scenes, clips about the Children’s Heart Project, and a 5 part miniseries on the Children’s Heart Project in Kurdistan.
I knew about Samaritan’s Purse through their Operation Christmas Child, but I had no clue about any of their other ministries. This video is an in depth look at a ministry I had never heard about before. The Children’s Heart Project examines and then provides operations in America for children who could not have these life saving operations in their own countries. In the miniseries on Kurdistan, American doctors are training the Kurdistanese doctors how to do some of the easier procedures in their own hospitals. I greatly enjoyed watching the video. These children stole my heart. I look forward to sharing this DVD with those who are familar with Samaritan’s Purse through Operation Christmas Child and those interested in medical missions. The lives of these children in the video as well as others who have received these life changing surgeries will forever be changed because of the Children’s Heart Project, both physically and spiritually.

I received this DVD from Booksneeze for the purpose of this review.
