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.

It´s something I believe is very important to remember, so we don't get caught up thinking only about where we are at and forget about Jesus' body as a whole, because God puts dreams in all his servants' hearts, and He expects us to work together to reach them. God says what we sow we reap. So if we sow time and effort into other people's ministries, He will bring people into our lives who will sow time and effort into our ministries, so that they can be enriched. For 2 years now, I've had the opportunity to teach music theory on Saturday mornings at an evangelical church just outside the beltway. Their music school is called Instituto corazón de adorador (Heart of a Worshiper Institute). I can tell they are motivated to raise up worshippers for God's kingdom in their area of the city and that they value their teachers, so I was happy to prepare and play an arrangement on the violin at their end-of-year celebration.
Melina and Yasmín are progressing well. Here's a video they made with their dad.
Melina has completed Suzuki book 1, although Yasmín has had to miss some classes because Stefanía has been too bogged down with high school to teach her. Please pray that high school studies don't get so demanding that my students don't have enough time for their musical development in God's kingdom. Also pray that God protects my students from physical harm. This year 3 good students of mine in our church have had to miss classes because of injuries to their left wrist (Stefanía, Miguel, and Melina). Also pray that God uses our music to reach new people this Christmas season.
Extreme Christmas blessings!
