400 students skip class to sing for their cancer patients. -troubled teacher

Since last year, Tennessee has been battling esophageal cancer. Ellis recently received a huge surprise while resting at home when 400 students and faculty from the school showed up to sing to him. He loves hymns and religious songs, which they sang!

In the video clip below, Ellis can be seen looking out his window, amazed and moved by the outpouring of support from his students.

Shannon Lee Seibert, a CPA mother, described the touching incident. She shared the school’s principal’s letter to parents on Facebook. It said:

«I wanted to update you on this morning’s schedule change and high school chapel, as it was a little unusual, but sometimes that’s just how the Holy Spirit calls us to be.»

«Three separate and unrelated people approached me last night and this morning, saying that while praying, they had a vision of high school students and faculty singing praises on the front lawn of the home of Ben Ellis, our Latin teacher who is battling cancer and who enjoys a good hymn sing.» So we loaded the buses and cars and drove away.

«It was a powerful and moving outpouring of love from our students to a man who loves us well.»

«When we got back to campus, we went straight to chapel and prayed and praised God.» It was both broken and lovely.»

Powerful, indeed! Below is the viral video of the students singing a prayer hymn to their beloved teacher.
