Many of you, like me, may be familiar with Samaritan's Purse through Operation Christmas Child. Another of their ministries is the Children's Heart Project.

The movie Three Hearts shares an up close look into The Children's Heart Project. Franklin Graham's daughter Cissie Graham Lynch is showcased on her internship with CHP. She is filmed through the complete process with three children in the program from choosing a child for the program, coordinating care with the doctor, and even the actual surgeries.

These children presented are from Mongolia, and interviews with the children and their family are featured in their homes. A clear explanation of the heart defects are provided with graphics to illustrate the problems. The children cared for with this project cannot get the care that they need in their own country. They are brought to America for a procedure that can change their life, and for the youngest girl it can save her life!

Subtitles are provided that translate as you watch a mongolian boy say "I just want to be a normal boy." and pray to God "Please heal me." His Mom shares how she is unable to provide the care that her son desperately needs, and you get to see her joy as she finds out that her son has been accepted into the program. 

Beyond the story of the children, also shared is the story of Cissie's new marriage and choices she makes related to travel based on situations in her new marriage. A bit of the Mongolian culture is shared including Budist influences. 

I enjoyed the brief clip of the young Mongolian girl playing in the water in the sink, her delight was contagious in this experieence we take for granted but which was completely new to her. I also loved watching the medical team grasping hands and praying together with the boy and his family before the surgery- so powerful!

Real emotions were shared throughout this life changing film.

Warning- graphic live videos of the surgerys are shared, those views are enlighteening but not for the faint of heart.

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."
