DVD Review and Giveaway: 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.


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. "We, as a CHP family, are hurting, yet we rejoice that Uugna spent the last 4 years of his life sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. Even until his final moments on earth, he spoke about his desire for everyone to know Jesus. Please join us as we pray for Uugna’s family and friends. We’re praying that his story will glorify the Lord above all, and turn more hearts to Him." I'm thankful that Uugna had the opportunity to give his heart to our Lord and Savior and thus now enjoys eternal life with Jesus.


The DVD's bonus features include the trailer, deleted scenes, video clips about the Children's Heart Project, and 5-part miniseries on the Children's Heart Project in Kurdistan.

The life of Billy and Ruth Graham have blessed the world by their living for the Lord, with their children and grandchildren working for the Lord, it carries through the generations.
