Andrew, Fisherman

Andrew was  a disciple of John the Baptist before he was a disciple of Jesus. Andrew, like his brother Peter, was a fisherman by trade, meaning that he was an outdoorsman and must have been very physically fit. He was exposed to the conditions and had learned a trade that was also physically demanding. 
Andrew and Simon were called by Jesus when they were fishing. They left their nets and followed Him leaving everything behind.

Andrew brought others to Christ, his brother Peter before Jesus made them disciples and the the little boy who had five loaves and two fishes. 

Andrew was a great example of what we should be as followers of Jesus.

John 1:40  One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother.
