Dear Family and Friends,
We would love to share with you about our upcoming adventure. We are going to take a break from “business as usual” to pursue a season of immersing ourselves in an atmosphere of “prayer and worship”. Our family has been accepted to an internship at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Missouri. This may not seem like the most sensible change at this point in time. However, in the midst of raising 3 young daughters, having a full-time job and maintaining our house and property, we have a yes in our hearts to take another step in this direction.
Intro to IHOPKC is the track we will be taking. This program focuses on the values we strive to have in our own lives and want to teach our kids. We are so blessed to have found something that accommodates all of us. The primary goals for interns is to have them grow in friendship with Jesus and to be equipped and empowered to strengthen corporate prayer wherever the Lord places them.
During our entire relationship we have carried hearts of worship and prayer, individually and corporately. We long to go deeper as a family and continue to grow in this area knowing how necessary it is as lovers of Jesus. We want to live to glorify Him and give Him our praise. He is worthy of it all.
“Worship and intercession are set forth as supremely important in God’s kingdom throughout all of history.” Mike Bickle
While we grow as a family we know that investing this time in an atmosphere that cultivates a greater Love for Jesus & His Word in the midst of corporate Prayer & Worship, will help us bear fruit that lasts in our lives. Our passion is to be a family modeling a lifestyle of prayer and worship in our community. Our hope is to be filled, encouraged, refreshed and sent back with a renewed vision for Tuolumne County. Our goal is to partner with the Body of Christ and help release these values that we will be growing in, to local families, homes and churches.
The dates of the program will be from September 22nd to December 18th and the classes will be held on the IHOP campus. An exciting bonus, Pat and TY (Pack’s Parents) will be housing with us as they participate in a follow-up track to their previous time in Kansas City.

AND if you want to partner with us in prayer, please let us know! We would love to have you join in with us on this journey. There will be some costs for our family mission out in Kansas City. If you want to sow into our family financially we would be greatly blessed! Please contact us if you feel lead to do so, we need about $6,700 for internship, housing, traveling and food expenses. Our goal is to share updates here: http://historyishiring.com/category/family-updates/ .
We are excited to take this journey together, please stay connected with us and keep us in your prayers!
