1703 – 1791
John Wesley was converted to Christ at the age of thirty-five. Before his conversion he had done missionary work among the American Indians as an Anglican minister. He was cast out of the Anglican Church and spent the rest of his life preaching in the fields and on the streets. He was up each morning before five o’clock for prayer and Bible study and rode on horseback fifteen to twenty miles a day preaching four or five times daily. During his lifetime Wesley traveled two hundred and fifty thousand miles preaching a total of forty-two thousand sermons. He died at the age of eighty-eight and preached up to the very month in which he died.
