It all started when a young guy named Ethan was diagnosed with a rare cancer four years ago. Last year an 8th grader named, Peter, got his buddies together on Friday mornings to pray for Ethan at a middle school in Midlothian, TX. They began using I am Second materials and as they opened it up to others, it immediately went to 80+ students.
These students formed Team Ethan in order to support their friend through this battle with cancer. Team Ethan inspired these weekly I am Second groups.
On this particular morning, 140+ students flooded through the doors and Peter opened the group with his story.
The students then broken into I am Second Groups to discuss the story.
As they gathered, they shared their stories and talked about life and God.
Before the bell would ring for class, the students ended their time together talking to God.
