Sometimes the potholes just become too much and you need to take matters into your own hands….
Especially when you realize that the vehicles that pass on the road most frequently belong to you and your boss, or someone coming to your ministry.
So, a coworker helped me arrange having three truck loads delivered along the way. I came with shovels, a hoe, and a rake.
The driver dumped piles of stony dirt in the problem areas, and we followed with our tools to spread it out as needed.
Some neighbors got involved, lending us by lending us a wheel barrow or even taking a turn at shoveling the dirt.
Soon some of our boys came home from school and they were eager to take part in the work as well.
Now driving to work is a bit more pleasant, and a lot less muddy.
