    The missionaries in the Oregon Territory had a very different purpose than the rest of those in the area. Most people who went west and to the Oregon Territory were doing so to get land and start a farm. Missionaries, while they might have done this as well, were primarily there to spread the Christian Gospel and start Christian ministries such as churches and orphanages.
