MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:
My family and I are familiar with Samaritan's Purse because we have participated in the Operation Christmas Child project for years. However, the Children's Heart Project is new to us. I'm so glad I got the opportunity to review this DVD made by Samaritan's Purse. Wow...what a wonderful documentary this is! I was so touched and I cried several times. Three children from Mongolia (Otga, Uugna, and Toggie) suffered from life-threatening heart defects. Through the Children's Heart Project, they and their moms were flown to America for their surgeries. Many lives were greatly affected. It's truly marvelous to see how God transformed people's hearts. Christ's love in action was clearly seen in doctors, nurses, staff, interpreters, host families, Garrett (the boy who raised $8000 for the Children's Heart Project) and his family.
The Children's Heart Project focuses on helping children with heart defects in countries where pediatric heart surgery is not available. They bring these children to North America for the operations they need. They work with hospitals and physicians who donate their services and expertise. They pay for the cost of round-trip airfare for the child, the child's mother or guardian, and an interpreter. They also coordinate host families and churches who provide a loving environment for the children as they go through surgery and recovery. Every step is covered in prayer. The most fantastic aspect of the project is the opportunities for the children and their families to hear the Gospel and give their hearts to Jesus Christ. Right now, there are over 200 children on the project list. Please watch the trailer below and visit http://www.threeheartsmovie.com/ to learn how you can help.
I highly recommend this heart-stirring DVD! Hope. Miracles. Compassion. Love. Community of believers. Lives saved physically and spiritually! My heart was so blessed to see these families come to know Christ. I was shocked and saddened when I found out from the Children's Heart Project Facebook page that Uugna just died last week.
