5 for Friday

Happy Friday!  Been a while since I did a 5 for Friday post. . .and I do like them.  So here's 5 things I wanted to share with you:

1. As you know, this is the 2nd week in a row Harris Teeter is running Super Doubles. More details and a matchup list can be found here. But check out what one Intentional Home reader brought home for just $5.97 plus tax!!!


2. Today only, Friday June 28 at Whole Foods, you can get organic grapes for just 99¢ a pound. 99¢ a pound is my target price for just regular grapes so to get organic grapes at this price is a great deal!! 


3. Mark your calendars and get your costumes ready because Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-Fil-A is Friday, July 12. More details can be found here, but the deal is: come dressed in full cow costume to any Chick-Fil-A on July 12 and get a free meal!!  Here are pictures of Intentional Home readers from past Cow Appreciation Days:



#4 and 5 (because this blurb is a little longer)

My Anna just arrived in Guatemala on Wednesday. As many of you know, she and I run Craft Camps during the summer to raise the money needed for her to get to Guatemala. She will be there until mid July. Here's Anna with this year's Crafty Campers:


While in Guatemala, Anna and her team partner with a school located in a challenging area of Guatemala City. The area is impacted by poverty, substance abuse and gangs. If interested, you can click here and read what Anna said about her time with this school last year. This is Anna's 3rd trip to Guatemala.

There is a church there in this area of Guatemala (see pic below) that is doing a great job of ministering to the 125 children, grades preschool thru 5th grade at this school and Anna and her team come alongside this church to help them reclaim hope for these vulnerable children.



Anna sent me the following email from Guatemala. Sounds like she is right where she belongs.


Hey Yall,

I miss you all a whole bunch! Yesterday we flew into Guatemala City around 1 o'clock (Guatemalan time). I forgot about the Guatemalan poparatsi being there for me, hahaha.  and then we came to Delmi and Carlos house. 

Around 4 o'clock the Wilson team came (who have been here for a week) and we went to Karos, the cancer home. We played with the children and served dinner. Then we came back here and ate dinner around 8ish. After that we had debrief for the Wilson team, but I was so tired I couldn't even close my eyes to pray. I went to sleep. Me and Grace are sharing a bed. She hates feet so who knows how she feels about sleeping with me. 

Then we had to wake up at the booty crack of dawn around 6 and I had a shower which was surprisingly warm:)) and then breakfast was served at 7. We had the oatmeal made out of rice, it's actually really really good. Then we were on the bus by 8. We went by the school and all the older kids, the ones that went to camp last year, were sticking their heads out the window and yelling... ANNAA!!! Awe. I wasn't allowed to go hug them but I will be able to tomorrow:)) 

We picked up the younger kids from the school and took them to the zoo, which was soooo much fun. I was the only leader in my group who spoke Spanish. I'm starting to pick it back up! Yay! On the bus ride back a little girl fell asleep in my arms how cute and the boy sitting next to me rest his head on my shoulder and fell asleep. I guess I did a good job wearing them out! hahaha.

We came back here and did fireworks for Caroline's birthday and now the Wilson team is at the school, but Lisa is making us stay here and rest because the next 2 weeks are going to be restless. Tomorrow the family team is coming late afternoon.

I love each and everyone of you. Thank you for supporting me. I will talk to you soon. Until then I will be trying to remember not to flush toilet paper down the toilet. ugh.

Love Anna
 

Happy Weekend!! May it be an intentional one!!
