BIO:John Wesley 1703-1791 Founder of Methodism. John Wesley was

converted to Christ at the age of 35. 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 5:00 for prayer and Bible study, and rode on horseback
15 to 20 miles a day, preaching four or five times daily. During his
lifetime, Wesley traveled 250,000 miles, preaching a total of 42,000
sermons. He died at the age of 88 and preached up to the very month in
which he died.
