John Wesley 1703-1791

My Friend Debbie     John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Church, was also a man that was strongly against slavery. He would go to the slave traders to meet and speak with them about Jesus. One famous slave trader he may have spoken with was James Newton. After Newton's conversion to Christianity, he wrote the wonderful hymn "Amazing Grace."

     Wesley lived in England in the 1700s and traveled and preached the gospel in London, Bristol, New Castle and made trips to Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

     He had married a widow, Mary Vazeille, later in his life. At the age of 88, he went home to be with the Lord. John Wesley kept preaching until the day he died. He authored many books of sermons. Wesley also had many quotes that have become well known; here are a few that show his character and faith in Jesus.

"Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can."
-John Wesley

"The best of it is, God is with us"
-John Wesley
