Three Hearts DVD * A Review

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.

  I really, really love this DVD. I have always had great faith and love for Billy Graham and his ministry.
  Cissie Graham Lynch is Billy Graham’s granddaughter and the daughter of Franklin Graham. Franklin Graham is the head of Samaritan’s Purse and The Children’s Heart Project is part of Samaritan’s Purse.
  This DVD shows Cissie and a group of people who arrange for three children from Mongolia to come to the US to have heart surgery that they wouldn’t be able to have there.
  This DVD goes through the whole process of chosing the children talking to the parents and bringing them over on the plane with one of their parents. Most of the times this is the first time any of them have been out of their country and it’s all so new to them.
  They have host families who are with them through the whole process and they offer there homes and everything they have.
  During this time they are in the US they are taken to church and told the gospel story and see first hand people doing and showing the work of the Lord. Most of the children and parents become Christians and that is the main thing The Children’s Heart Project is about.
  Right now there are 200 children in Mongolia who need heart surgery. Bringing each child over cost $2,200. One boy here in the US had to have that same surgery and so this project is really dear to him. This boy and family/friends raised over $8,000. I would love to do something like this someday.
  I think this DVD would be a great tool for church groups and family groups to really explain how they need and can raise money. It shows all of the steps they have to go through.
I highly recommend this DVD. It has awakened in me a great need and a way to help children.
