Difficulties sending push-notifications (Parse-Server/Heroku)

I am having trouble sending push-notifications from an (objective C, iOS) app of mine.

Since it is the first time I am doing this in this environment I am probably missing some important detail.

Here is the shape of my code for the ParseServer initialization inside index.js:

var api = new ParseServer({
databaseURI: databaseUri || 'mongodb://heroku_xyz336:.....mlab.com:.../heroku_xyz336',
cloud: process.env.CLOUD_CODE_MAIN || __dirname + '/cloud/main.js',
appId: process.env.APP_ID || 'myAppID',
masterKey: process.env.MASTER_KEY || 'myMasterKey',
push: {
ios: [
pfx: '/cloud/MY_APP.Dev.p12',
bundleId: 'me.you.bundleId',
production: false // Dev
pfx: '/cloud/MY_APP.Prod.p12',
bundleId: 'me.you.bundleId',
production: true // Prod
fileKey: process.env.FILE_KEY || 'myFileKey',
serverURL: process.env.SERVER_URL || 'https://myApp.herokuapp.com/parse',
liveQuery: {
classNames: ["ClassOne", "ClassTwo", "ClassThree"] // List of classes to support for query subscriptions

Here is what I get in the logs:

Even though the log above is pretty obscure, I can notice the part that says:

Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/cloud/MyApp.Prod.p12'

But I am sure MyApp.Prod.p12 exists locally under the cloud folder.
An by running:

heroku run bash

I can also checked that it actually is on the server.

Could it be that I have put the .p12 file at the wrong place? Or something else?

Instead of pfx: '/cloud/MY_APP.Dev.p12',  

Use pfx: 'cloud/MY_APP.Dev.p12',
