Here are two ideas for you:
1. You could tell the person you are helping what Jesus has done for you. Here are ten ideas to get you started:
**Tell them about a time Jesus caused you to smile, and that is why you want to help them smile.
**Tell them about a time Jesus comforted you when you were lonely and that is why you want to be their friend.
**Tell them about a time Jesus gave you food and something to drink and that is why you want to give them food and something to drink.
**Tell them how you know Jesus loves you, and that He loves them too.
**Tell them about a time God helped your family, (by not getting in an accident, sending someone to help with a flat tire, having enough money to buy things you need, not running out of gas before you arrived at the gas station, etc.) and that is why you want to help them.
**Tell them about a time Jesus helped you (find something missing, do a project, remember something, etc) and that is why you want to help them.
Take your time. The person will enjoy listening to you. Don't worry if you stumble. The person won't mind, he or she wants to spend time with you.
2. You could tell them a Bible story you know. Here are ten suggestions:
Daniel in the Lion's Den
Gideon and his tiny army win the battle
Joseph saves the world from starvation
Elijah and the prophets of Baal
Peter walking on water
Paul and his shipwreck
Jesus feeding the 5000
