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.

This past July, the mother of one of our best missionary friends here, Rocco Ditrolio, became seriously ill. So Rocco needed me to translate for a week for a team from the U.S. in the small town of Las Lomitas in the northern province of Formosa, Argentina. There are a couple of other churches in the town, but they have very legalistic tendencies, not to mention there are also Jehovah's Witnesses there. The AG of Argentina had been planning a church plant there for a couple years now, and the team from the U.S. was one of three teams that went there to minister and evangelize. We evangelized with clowns, skits, and testimonies in the plaza, and we were also surprised when they let us do so in the elementary and high schools in the town. One girl on the team shared her testimony with a high school about Jesus saved her from an abusive environment as a kid. She then asked how many wanted to accept Christ into their hearts. At least like 20 teenagers raised their hands! God really did some amazing things in the first services of this new church there. Many people came to know Him in the altar calls.

In August I had a great time translating for David Wells, the superintendent of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, in Henderson and sharing our heritage with him there. My violin students and I are using our gifts for evangelism at the front door of our church. People are very responsive to it.
