Born in Havana, Maria Vadia was 10 years old when she and her family fled to Miami to escape the Communist regime in her native country. She attended Catholic schools and was a Sunday Catholic with no personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Later married to a wealthy man, she was gripped with materialism; yet in the midst of everything that the world had to offer, she knew that something was missing.

Maria was baptized in the Holy Spirit in 1987 and consecrated her life to the Lord Jesus Christ and to the preaching of the Gospel. Active in the Catholic Charismatic Renewal, Maria has spoken at many conferences and has traveled extensively around the world including the Caribbean, Malta, Ghana, Uganda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Indonesia, New Zealand, Canada, India, Poland and Italy, bringing a message of faith, salvation and healing.

She is the founder of the Magnificat Chapter in Miami, and is connected with Glory House of Miami, a safe haven for human traffic victims. Led by the Holy Spirit, Maria’s foundation is helping the Pygmies with new houses in Kabale, Uganda.

She is mother to four grown children and nine grandchildren.
