DVD Review

DVD Review: Three Hearts

Presented by Samaritan’s Purse, Features Cissie Graham-Lynch, and Directed by Arthur Rasco

Three hearts is a documentary, chronicling three Mongolian youth (aged 3, 16,18) with heart defects and their journey to America to get surgery.  The organization is called Children's Heart Project from Samaritan's Purse, an organization spear headed by Franklin Graham's daughter, Cissie Graham Lynch.  I had know idea what this DVD was about when I put it into my DVD player, but it did not take long before I was engrossed in this documentary that was emotional, joyful, hopeful and spiritual.  Here you have three children that are on the road to a certain early grave with little hope. No surgical hospitals, little money, little resources and an absence of the knowledge that there is a loving Father God. All of this changes when they are chosen to be part of The Children's Heart Project. 
The documentary takes you from family life in Mongolia to the American hosts in Texas. You will find your self jealous for the compassion you see in the people involved. The best part was seeing the children  the families changed by the love and hope that they find in Christ.

While this documentary is clearly a project aimed at getting people involved in support and prayer and perhaps giving current supporters a glimpse into what they are sowing into, it was encouraging to see what work IS being done, and it causes you heart to be filled with compassion.

This DVD was provided free from the reviewers program for my honest review.
