Movie Review of Three Hearts

A World Away, Three Children need a Miracle

This documentary style film was produced by Samaritan’s Purse, and it was distributed by Thomas Nelson Publishers.
Normally I’m not a big fan of documentaries, but this one may have changed my mind AND heart. The story begins with Cissie Graham Lynch, granddaughter of Billy Graham and daughter of Franklin Graham. Cissie began her internship with Samaritan’s Purse with the intent to fly to Mongolia and bring back three children with congenital heart defects. Due to family obligations, she is unable to go. Instead, a young boy from Texas was invited to come along with his family for the adventure of a lifetime.
The film follows them to Mongolia and shows you the living conditions of each family. Each child will be given a new lease on life with these surgeries. Each one would not live long without the surgery.
They are flown to San Antonio where a team of people, from host families to medical professionals, helps them along the way.
While watching a real heart surgery was incredible, what really made me well up in tears was watching these people from Mongolia be introduced to the Savior.
This is a beautiful, well-made film that will touch your heart.

I was given a copy of this movie for purpose of review, but was not required to review it positively.
