Read John 1:35-42.
What did Andrew do before He followed Jesus to where He was staying? He went to tell his brother! The people had been waiting for the Messiah for hundreds of years.

Be prepared this week to equip preteens to share their faith with others. If a preteen is a Christian, encourage him to write out his testimony. (A simple format to use is: what I was like before I met Jesus, how/when I met Jesus, what Jesus means to me today.) Preteens can use “The ABCs of Becoming a Christian” to share their faith with their friends, but make sure they know why a person would want to become a Christian by clearly explaining the good news—the gospel.
