In an incredibly heart-warming gesture, 400 students turned up outside their cancer-stricken teacher’s house in Nashville to sing songs of worship.
The Christ Presbyterian Academy students showed their Latin teacher, Ben Ellis, how much they cared by sweetly singing outside his house as he watched from the window.
Get the tissues ready:
Musician Tim McGraw posted the video on Facebook after his friend captured the moment and sent it to him, the Telegraph reports.
A friend sent this to me today. Ben Ellis is a Nashville area high school teacher battling cancer.Advertisement
The entire student body (400+ students plus HS faculty) drove to his house to worship with him. Our thoughts and Prayers are with him and his family….. So precious and kind.
One parent commented on the post:
Our children attend CPA and my high schooler LOVES Mr Ellis, he was her Latin teacher for 2 years. We ALL love Mr. Ellis and his precious family. The kids were giving back to him some of the love he has given to them.
He is the definition of a teacher, a role model, a servant. He wrote the kids a letter telling them he is even more certain now that God is Good and with us. And Ben is full of hope, joy, and peace.Advertisement
He told them to look to Jesus to be filled.
