18 As Jesus was walking by Lake Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (called Peter) and Simon’s brother Andrew. These brothers were fishermen, and they were fishing in the lake with a net.19 Jesus said to them, “Come, follow me, and I will make you a different kind of fishermen. You will bring in people, not fish.”20 Simon and Andrew immediately left their nets and followed him.

Since Bobby and Alex weren’t in the same grade, the only time they saw each other was at lunch. Bobby thought he was smart when he put Alex’s invitation in his lunch bag. Unfortunately, Bobby didn’t close the bag completely after he put in his freshly washed grapes. Some of the water had dripped onto the lettering on Alex’s invitation making it just a picture of a colorful swirl.
“I can’t believe this!” Bobby thought, mentally slapping his forehead. “I better make sure to catch up with Jack at recess.”
By the time it was recess, Bobby was almost dreading talking to Jack. What if Jack couldn’t come to his party either? Why did Mama and Papa let him decide who to invite all by himself? His first friends’ party was already starting to be less fun than he had hoped.
“Hey, Jack! Please tell me you can come to my party on Saturday!” Bobby called.
“About that….,” Jack hesitated.
“Oh no,” thought Bobby, “here we go again.”
