I have filled Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes for many years now, so I was quite interested when given the opportunity to review Three Hearts (a movie about three children in need of complicated heart surgeries they cannot receive in their own country) from Samaritan’s Purse.
The Three Hearts movie website shares this about the film:
“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?“
I sat down with the girls last week, and we watched the movie. I was a little hesitant just because I wasn’t sure what would be in the movie. It did include some scenes of actual heart surgery — which the girls were actually enamored by. Of course, they like to watch the surgeries their dad does on animals, so the blood wasn’t really a new sight for them! I really loved that the girls were exposed to another culture and country in the movie (Mongolia), and we were able to see what Children’s Heart Project is all about. I know the girls like it, because they asked to watch it again the next day!
