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. Through this organization, Mongolian children with congenital heart defects are brought to the US for lifesaving treatment they cannot receive in their own country. There are obstacles they must overcome in the process, and because it is real life, everything does not go as planned. But it is a beautiful story of an organization making a difference in the world, of people giving and serving and sacrificing so others may find wholeness. And not only physical wholeness, but the good news of Jesus Christ is also shared with these families, changing there lives for eternity. It was great to learn more about one of the many other things that Samaritans Purse does (other than shoeboxes) to share the love of Christ with the world.
