He was revived!

Mecca and Emmanuel
Mecca credits prayer for saving her son’s life.

After visiting CPC’s Keim Center in the midst of a crisis pregnancy, Mecca made a prayerful choice for LIFE and decided to bring her little one into the world. Months later, she would again cry out to Jesus for her baby.

When little Emmanuel was born, he was not breathing because the umbilical cord had wrapped around his neck – asphyxiating him. Although she felt helpless at that moment, Mecca knew she wasn’t alone. By taking parenting classes at one of CPC’s Keim Centers, she learned the importance of prayer.

Mecca prayed for Emmanuel, and he was revived!

As Emmanuel recovered, Mecca continued to draw on the things she learned at CPC’s Keim Center. Mecca said, “I now knew why I was drawn to [The] Keim [Centers]. All the things that I learned there were to prepare me for what was to come. It was what I learned in those classes that gave me the courage to reach my hand in his crib while in ICU and speak life into him.”

Mecca is so grateful for the help she received from CPC through its Keim Centers that she wants to share her story boldly. She and Emmanuel will be joining us for CPC’s Walk for LIFE next month! Mecca is a fundraising walker because she wants other women like her to receive the love and support she received through our pregnancy center ministry.

I hope you consider following Mecca’s lead and participate in one of our three Walk for Life events as a fundraising walker. This is one of CPC’s largest annual fundraisers. We do not receive any government funding and we depend on the giving hearts of people like you to be able to reach out to the thousands of women we serve each year. It’s not too late for you to take part. You can register online at

If you can’t Walk for Life this year, please consider supporting Mecca and Emmanuel as they walk. This would be a huge encouragement to her and to the ministry of CPC. You can donate to Mecca by placing your gift in the envelope provided or you can go to Mecca’s Walk for Life webpage at There, you can give an online donation or make a pledge to be paid at a later date. You can also send a personal message to Mecca. I know it would be a tremendous blessing for her to hear from you.

Thank you for supporting CPC! Mecca and her son, Emmanuel, represent thousands of women and children helped by this ministry. We are grateful for you!

Walking to save lives and spare hearts,
Toby DeBause, President of Crisis Pregnancy Center of Tidewater
