Greetings from the New Fellow!

Hello!  My name is Brad Wilkin and I am the newest fellow here at Touching Tiny Lives.  I am so excited to be here in the beautiful country of Lesotho surrounded by both beautiful scenery and friendly people. 

Many years ago I visited South Africa and Kenya where I volunteered with several different HIV/AIDS related organizations.  During that time, I fell in love with the cultures and was encouraged by the opportunities to learn and simultaneously offer a helping hand.   Needless to say, I’m excited to be back and I am ready for adventure!

Having spent the last couple of years in Denver, Colorado, I was elated to find out that Mokhotlong is surrounded by beautiful peaks.  I have already been impressed with the marvelous vistas during hikes and an outreach journey to a local village.  

I know my fellowship over the course of the next year will be full of grand experiences, awkward moments, and new friendships.  I look forward to sharing some of my experiences with you.

Welcome, Brad! As a native Coloradan, I also felt very comfortable with the mountains and high altitude. Hope you can get some good hikes in while you're there. And Reid said you guys are getting good use out of the cookbook--so glad!
