Mara Coles FORM 2018-2019

So for those of you who don't know, I moved from California to Indiana back in November to help take care of my brother! The past 6 months have been so overwhelming but also very rewarding. I've reached higher levels in my relationship with God that are so thrilling and I hear Him calling me into deeper waters! With that being said: I've applied and have been accepted into FORM: a discipleship, leadership, and missional training program starting fall of 2018(WOOHOO). In this program I'll be developing habits to follow Christ more intentionally as well as allow Him to fully live through me. The program runs from September to May and we end with a missions trip to Haiti.
Unfortunately,  I won't be permanently returning to California as soon as I originally hoped due to starting this program! California will be missed so dearly along with friends, family, church, etc, but 
I feel God has opened doors in this state for me to walk through. Doing this program not only will benefit me spiritually, but will allow me to stay close to my brother as he gets settled in this new state. The necessary care for him has been pushed back and so it would be helpful to have me around from time to time..
I'm very excited for what the Lord is doing and would love to have as much support as possible!
 I have 4 months to raise $4,000 for tuition (mission trip to Haiti is included in that price)  and I fully believe with prayer and support it is possible! If 165 people  donate $25 then my tuition is covered, but as always any amount is helpful!!!
Along with those who donate I plan on sending out letters with updates and blogging my journey for all to see the growth and challenges that are taking place.
Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this and for taking the time to pray and lend a helping hand. I hope it is fully known that deciding to leave California was not easy for me, but the Lord doesn't ask us to do the easy the things, He asks us to use His strength to take on the hard things.
Again.. THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH! My appreciation is more than I could even express!
