Oregon Faith News Note,

The entire student body of Christ Presbyterian Academy came out to sing to their teacher, Ben Ellis. Mr. Ellis was suffering from esophageal cancer and died 10 days later. Ellsi said, “I felt unity, I’m not alone. Joy. Peace. I also felt very loved; I already felt loved by God, but it was extra meaningful that God poured his love out to me through 500 people who loved me so well,” The video was highlighted by country singer Tim McGraw and seen more than 20 million times. A school official later said “”Ben entered Heaven fully healed; he is home.”
