McPherson, Aimee Semple


McPherson, Aimee Semple
orig. Aimee Elizabeth Kennedy

(9 oct. 1890, cerca de Ingersoll, Ontario, Canadá–27 sep. 1944, Oakland, Cal., EE.UU.).

Evangelizadora pentecostal estadounidense de origen canadiense. Nacida en una granja, comenzó a predicar a la edad de 17 años y en 1908 viajó a China en calidad de misionera junto a su esposo, Robert Semple. Cuando enviudó, se trasladó a EE.UU., donde su segundo matrimonio, con Harold McPherson, finalizó en 1918 cuando se convirtió en una evangelizadora y sanadora itinerante. Se asentó en Los Ángeles y fundó la International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. Durante casi 20 años predicó a grandes audiencias en su templo Angelus; fundó además una estación de radio, escribió libros y folletos, y estableció cerca de 200 misiones. En 1926 desapareció misteriosamente por cinco semanas; cuando reapareció, su relato acerca de un secuestro fue recibido con escepticismo. Un tercer matrimonio terminó en divorcio y enfrentó numerosos procesos por irregularidades financieras. Murió de una sobredosis accidental de hipnóticos.
