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.

Generally during the first months of the year, there's a bit less activity since its summer. College students leave the city to be with their families, and people go on vacation for a couple weeks. But I've used the time to work up close with my students for an hour a day so that they know the best way to practice. So far the progress has been amazing! Melina has finished all the pieces in Book 1 and is halfway through Book 2, making her one of my top students along with Stefanía! David and Lucas have made excellent progress as well. I will soon be making many more arrangements for them to play in evangelism and church presentations.

On the first Saturday of this month, I was invited by a music teacher from one of the Christian music schools I've taught at to play my violin for her grandma's 90th birthday. She's in very good health and really only looks like 70. I played some classical pieces, hymns, and some modern worship songs. I could sense a real presence of God as we celebrated her life and her family shared powerful testimonies of her intercession for her family and her faithfulness to God. What a legacy!
