“The midwives, however, feared God … Therefore, God dealt well with the midwives; and the people multiplied and grew very numerous.”

–  Exodus 1


From the early days of this ministry, the delivery of healthy babies in a healthy environment has been a priority at La Maternidad. This happened because Padre Julio was exhausted by baptizing so many babies right before they died. From those humble beginnings, they have grown to impact Chimbote, a city not much smaller than Pittsburgh, in innumerable ways – not the least of which is the birth of more than 100,000 babies.


This week, we pray for, and praise God for, the midwives.
