One of the little girls who was killed in the horrific shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, is being remembered for sharing the gospel on social media.

Ellie Garcia, a 9-year-old victim of Tuesday's massacre, had posted a short video to TikTok about Jesus before she died.

"Hey, guys. I just wanted to give you a little catch-up," Garcia said in the 15-second video posted to Facebook by her father, Steven Garcia.

"Jesus. He died for us. So when we die, we'll be up there with Him," she said. "In my room, I have three pictures of Him."

In a later post, her father talked about how his daughter loved to pray as he shared a photo that he took in January of the little girl laying on her bed with her hands folded in prayer.

"Caught my Ellie Gee in the middle of her talk with our almighty... I love you baby girl and I love the way you pray," he wrote at the time.

"She prayed every night out loud so we can pray with her," Garcia explained on the shared image. "I remember this day we had just bought the lamp that is on and she wanted to sleep with it on so she aired up her air mattress gave Us a hug and kiss and went to pray as mom made treats in the kitchen!!! These memories are all I have left."

Ellie would have turned 10 on June 4.
