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.

Happy New Year! Last month music ministry went well as I was invited by an old friend from Bible college to play the violin with his church band for their Christmas special. They do great music and I had a wonderful time. Christmas presentation in our church also went well. Our band members worked hard to prepare the songs and it sounded very well done. We did Jesus Messiah and Unspeakable Joy by Chris Tomlin among other songs. We also did a puppet show for the kids.

I'm believing that God has wonderful new plans to show us this year along with more students and music education! Since most of my violin students at the church are beginners and quite young (12 to 16 years old) I have decided to work 1 hour every day individually with most of them for the next 6 months or so to thoroughly instill in them good practicing habits and ensure that they progress to their maximum potential in God's ministry for them. Stefanía and her brother Tomás are back from Paraguay again to help out too. Pray that we outdo ourselves this year in music presentation and drawing people into God's life-changing presence.
