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.

Blessings! Sorry it's been so long since my last update; there's a lot that's happened. During the church move which was a big job, we were able to get together some decent Christmas music to perform this year. My students played Jingle bells and Silent night.



The delay in my newsletter is because I've moved out of my old apartment and because the phone company was very slow installing it in my new apartment. Starting in December there was a major infestation of cockroaches where I was living before. Aside from it being summer here, it happened because most of the people in the building do not fumigate since they use it for office space and are not there when the fumigator arrives. I had to leave because they would get into my electronic equipment and destroy it. So I moved back in with my parents for a couple of weeks, looking for an apartment. Then God blessed me. The Landins are staying in Paraguay again this year until December, which is unfortunate since they will be missed, but they are renting out their small apartment to me which is very nice and just around the corner from the new church building. They plan to rent a larger apartment for themselves when they get back.

The Landins also invited me to spend a couple of weeks with them in their town in Paraguay which is San Juan Nepomuceno. Since I've never really been on vacation, I accepted. It was really nice to get to know their friends and family. I also ministered in music in their local church. They are very kind-hearted people.

I came back the first week of February. I'm finally settled and am setting up projects for this year.
