Change the World a Little!
God’s creation is amazing and wonderful! Consider the bee. These tiny insects, all part of a large hive with one Queen; just like us tiny people, part of a church family with one God in a large world.
That’s why Water Street is partnering with our neighbours Shawn Caza and Melissa Berney from Village-on-the-Green when they requested a place for their beehives on the roof of our gymnasium to help them “change the world a little by way of sustainable beekeeping.”
We pray that the ministry initated by WSC will be a “beehive of activity” with lots of God’s workers who are buzzing to spread His Word.
Facts for 1 Bee:
- life expectancy: max 50 days
- trips to and from the hive: 750
- total distance flown: 2,000 km
- visits 600 flowers per day
- collects only 5 gm of nectar/pollen/honey in its lifetime.
- It takes 2,500 bees… to fly 2,500,000 km… and visit 30 million flowers to produce 1 kg. of honey!!
