African Killer Bees

Earlier this week I took Joel to the Honey Bee Training Center, at the Timothy Center. Joel was nervous but incredibly excited to get this close to African Killer Bees. Even though technically that is exactly what they are, if they are treated properly the chance of actually being killed by them is extremely slim. 

With that said, you'll notice there are no pictures of me in here (Jeff), just Joel, I was happy to keep my distance!!!

Lester Lowe is the primary "bee guy" in Uganda and we are fortunate enough to have him working at our bee project in Masaka! He is an excellent teacher, Joel learned a lot and had a great morning!
