CPC Ministries (short for Cuerdas para Cristo) is dedicated to producing professional violinists and cellists for the music ministry in God's Kingdom. We strive for them to know God intimately through praise, worship, and prayer. We want to facilitate their participation with the rest of the band and give them a larger role in all styles of music using both acoustic and electric violins and cellos with all sorts of effects pedals and bowing techniques. We also want them to know how to minister spiritually with their instruments to believers and unbelievers alike and in this way expand God's Kingdom.

This past month has gone very well for me. Since my last update I´ve worked on a few violin arrangements that I played on my 2-week trip to the States to help my dad raise funds for our ministry. We visited several churches in west Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. After saving up for about a year, I am blessed to finally have an electric violin made by John Jordan. This my first chance ever to have an electric violin of such good quality. It sounds amazing. This along with a Boss effects pedal I got are key to developing the music ministry of our church here in Argentina. Together they will prove to be part of the unique praise and worship sound I´m going for.

When I was in Portales, New Mexico, the assistant pastor had me play my electric violin for a recording he was working on. I thoroughly enjoyed doing so, and it was a highlight of my trip. The recording engineer has a daughter who is interested in violin, so I let her try out my electric one. She was very happy, and I was glad to inspire her.

We had great missions-inspiring services up there. The people were very kind-hearted and generous. Now that I´m back, I continue all my violin teaching and I hit the ground running preparing our church band for more evangelism in the park. God is good.
