After growing up John Wesley and his brother, Charles, came from England to the United States after the death of his father. Charles was made the secretary of Indian Affairs, and John was appointed a missionary.
John’s missionary endeavors were not successful because he was distracted from his efforts and after two years he returned to England. His return to England was providential as he began to envision a method of religion that became Methodism. His plan to be a missionary to the Indians was an initial step to his place in history as the father of the Methodist religion.
