Three Hearts DVD Samaritan's Purse Review and Giveaway





Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world.

About Children’s
Heart Project

Children’s Heart Project brings children with congenital heart defects to North America for life-saving surgery. Since 1997, Children’s Heart Project has helped hundreds of children from more than a dozen developing countries.

About Three Hearts:




A passionate team of people work to save the lives of three Mongolian children with life-threatening heart defects.


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.

Review:


I had heard about Samaritan's Purse through my church, but was not aware of this particular project.  This documentary follows three children from Mongolia and their families' journey to get life-saving heart surgery through the Children's Heart Project.


This is a very moving film!  As a parent, I couldn't help but feel for these parents who felt helpless to do anything for their sick children.  I can't imagine being in a place that does not have the technology to help your child.  This project is a wonderful way to reach out to these parents and not only help them financially, but also as a way to minister to their spiritual needs and share with them God's love.


It also gives a perspective from those that are involved in the project and how it impacts their lives.


I couldn't help but grab some tissues at several points in the film.  It grabs you by the heartstrings!


I highly recommend you see this documentary with your family.  It is also a great project to show to your church group, Sunday School class,  or youth group (especially Middle School and High School) to inspire them to get involved in helping others either in their community or far away.

I also have heard of Samaritan's Purse, but this is the first time I heard about this project. I learned there are many ways you can be an Ambassador for these children.
