JOHN WESLEY MOMENTS
John Wesley was a traveling preacher. He was always on the move sharing the Gospel of Christ wherever he went. It has been estimated that John Wesley spent one half of his waking hours traveling. He rode his horse more than 250,000 miles across England.
John Wesley spent 23 months in Georgia. It took him four months on the ship before he even arrived at the mouth of the Savannah River. While in Georgia he made 10 trips between Savannah and St. Simons Island. He also made several trips between Savannah and Charleston, South Carolina. He was constantly on the move!
Samuel Johnson, a great conversationalist, loved spending time talking with John Wesley. He complained that just as soon as they settled down for a good conversation, Wesley would leave to go visit someone who was sick.
