I learned that Dr. Baxter is currently living in Botswana, Africa teaching healthcare workers there how to treat HIV and AIDS patients (Botswana has the second highest rate of HIV infection in the world). The fact that he completely uprooted his life in the States to help others thousands of miles away is further testament to his compassionate spirit and good heart. I can only hope he writes another book detailing his experiences across the Atlantic. If it's anything like "The Least of These My Brethren," it should be a great, great read!
**As a side note, Dr. Baxter is indeed as verbose in person as his writing suggests, though his extensive vocabulary is anything but pretentious! His vast intellect and humble character were a delightful paradox!
