Hello. I am a father/computer programmer/Christian living in West Chester PA. The purpose of this blog is to explore the concept of “mission” in all of its ramifications. I am calling it “To the Moon” because of a book my sister gave me which inspired this blog called Destination Moon. I believe in ambitious achievable goals such as the one John F Kennedy stated in his famous speech:

I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to Earth. No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of space; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish..”

With love for all!

    Hello Mark. I got your contact information from the blog page about Peng. I was happy to see a way to get back in touch with you. I haven’t seen you since I left Lawrence, Kansas. Do you remember me? Frieda and I are living and working as English teachers in the UAE. We’ve been here since 1998. What are you up to these days? Mark Sellers

  2. Mark, Of course I remember you. You are hard to forget! Good to be back in contact with you!

    God Bless,

  3. Hey Mark,
    I didn’t know you had website. It’s pretty cool. Lot’s of interesting info. God bless you.


  4. Adrian,

    Thanks! I love your videos on youtube. As the deer pants for the waterbrook so my soul pants for God’s words in parched places! Your work is truly missional and helping to fulfill Matt 28:19-20 at http://www.realverse.com and youtube.


  5. Why would you want anyone to pretend otherwise? ,

  6. I had an idle moment and did a search for my name on the internet and re-encountered the post I made to your blog in 2007. How are things going with you these days? Where are you working? Are you still in Lawrence?

  7. I just read you are in West Chester, PA. Interesting. My ancestor is recorded as the first settler in West Chester. I saw it in a coloring book at the Sellers Library. My cousin still lives in the area and I visited him last summer. Small world. Mark

    Hi Mark!
    Are you the Mark Cole I remember coming to Christ as a high school student while attending Campus Life meetings in Lawrence some time around 1978 give or take a few (how’s that for a run on sentence)?

    As my kids might say: “This is so cool!”

    In my old age I’m just starting to catch on to the personal computer world and probably would have not have been likely to find you a few months ago. I started looking on line for you all as my oldest son is graduating high school (home schooled) and I was thinking of people who did calligraphy.

    I think of you both often… and just got a look at Gretchen’s Hats. It appears you are doing well.

    God Bless,

    • Hi Kim!

      Yes that would be me! We are doing very well, and I remember doing Bible Studies with you when you were a Campus Life Volunteer and giving me a lot of wise advice. Please feel free to contact me at Mark.Cole@gmail.com. Do you have a facebook account?

      God Bless,
