A 9-year-old little girl who was one of the victims of the mass shooting incident at an elementary school shared Jesus in a TikTok video before she died.
Elementary School Mass Shooting
The news about the shooting incident at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, broke the hearts of many. Nineteen students and two teachers lost their lives in the incident. The innocent children who went to school didn’t know it was their last day on earth. Moreover, the victims’ parents also still couldn’t believe the tragedy that happened. But they will all be remembered and cherished in the heart of loved ones.
Among the 19 children who died in the massacre was 9-year-old Ellie Garcia. Apparently, the little Christian girl shared about Jesus on social media before she passed away. While other children her age just join social media trends, the 9-year-old went against the flow and shared the Gospel.
9-Year-Old Preaches Jesus Before Her Death
Ellie recorded a 15-second video about Jesus. Then her dad, Steven Garcia, posted the powerful message of her daughter on Facebook.
“Jesus. He died for us,” she preached. “So when we die, we’ll be up there with Him. In my room, I have three pictures of him.”
Moreover, her dad revealed on Thursday how Ellie loved to pray. The father shared the precious moment on Facebook as he took a photo of her last January while she was praying. Apparently, the little girl “prayed every night out loud” to pray with her mom and dad.
“Caught my Ellie Gee in the middle of her talk with our almighty..,” Steven wrote. “I love you baby girl and I love the way you pray.”
Further, Ellie would have had to turn ten this coming June 4, Saturday, if she hadn’t died.
The post received many comments, extending their comfort and condolences to Steven.
One user wrote, “RIP Baby girl you are now with Jesus lil Angel.”
Another user commended Ellie’s great faith. She wrote, “Her faith is inspiring, seeing these posts makes me realize how much I have to learn from such a young soul who was wise beyond her years. She will always be remembered. You and her mom are in my prayers.”
Prayers could go a long way. But if you wish to help the Garcia family through monetary means, you can donate at Ellie’s GoFundMe page.
