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. (from the website)


Not many films make me cry, but this was one of them. Some of them were happy tears, but this is definitely a documentary that will tug at your emotions. Following the journey of these 3 kids from Mongolia as they travel to Texas for heart surgery that is unavailable in their own country brings such hope. There were also many light-hearted moments. I love Garrett Ferguson, the Texas child who helped raise funds for other kids after recovering from heart surgery he had as an infant. His honest reactions to the food and culture of Mongolia were a joy to watch. I am so happy Samaritan's Purse invited him & his parents to go with them to pick up the 3 heart patients (along with their moms); it gave me a greater understanding of having others along who can reassure these nervous families that there really is a new freedom to life after heart surgery. This documentary is an excellent resource, especially for groups who want to make a difference in a child's life. More than 3 hearts were renewed during this journey, and a far-reaching impact is made.
