Gilbert & Danielle Skrivseth

June 10, 2023 | Bonners Ferry, ID

We have been married for 7 years and have two biological children. We believe children are such precious gifts from God, and that God calls all of his followers to love and care for the people around us. This is one way we want to serve God by loving others. We have always had a soft heart for children and in the past several years we have felt the Lord leading us to adoption.

James 1:27 “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

Domestic Adoption

Orphan | United States

We are in the process of presenting and waiting to be chosen by a pregnant momma. We can’t wait to one day bring our baby home. The total cost for this kind of adoption is around $50,000.

Ms. Leah

Widow | Idaho

Leah lost her husband 28 years ago. Since then her life has been very traumatic. She has lost one of her three children to suicide, and one is serving a 40 year prison sentence. She has lost so much, but she says Jesus has always been there by her side. Lately she has felt Gods healing hand in her life, and He has been transforming her trauma into beauty. We want to bless her by cleaning up around her house and putting in a back yard.

A Different Kind of Fundraiser

A team of volunteers is completing a service project of fixing up a widow's home. We are raising sponsorship for our day of service. The funds raised will help an orphan to become adopted into a forever family. Will you sponsor us?
