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.

Hi everyone! Sorry I couldn't update last month; it´s that I was very busy furnishing and moving into my new one-room apartment just around the corner from the church! Thanks to your continued support, I have finally been able to move out from under my parents' roof, and it is so convenient to live right where I work. I have been provided with everything I need and am having no problem getting used to it. Something intriguing: Apparently I can't get any hot water from the plumbing in the building, so I have a gas water heater on the wall, but it's not a tank that fills and empties. The flames heat the water as it passes through a series of pipes inside the device. The gas fitter said I can't mix hot and cold water in the shower or sinks because it will ruin the device, but fortunately I manage to get the water to a comfortable temperature with the dial on heater.

Summer is finally almost over here. People are coming back from vacation, although a couple members have left indefinitely. Pablo Huertas, a very good guitarist who has helped us significantly in our music ministry here has decided to return to his hometown of Puerto Madryn down south, and Stefanía Landín, one of my best violin students, and her family have felt it necessary to return to Paraguay for at least a year to be with their family there. They will be greatly missed. Even so, my music ministry here continues full throttle as I still have several dedicated violin and cello students and plans to execute. God bless!
