Medical to the remote

This Blog is all about the work of God. Nothing we do is without the knowledge of our Father. He is the soul provider for everything we do.
We are Mordegai, Toinette, Suzaan,Gideon and Anton Rossouw from Namibia-Africa. . This Blog is all about our lives here in Cambodia while Suzaan works in South Africa. We are real Farmers from Africa and we love life and what it have to offer and enjoy it day by day.

Mordegai travels to remote villages up in the far North of Cambodia, doing much needed medical work ,where no other doctors go, with local pastors as well as the Department of Health of Ratanakiri.

Toinette is at home with the boys. Homeschooling Gideon is a task not for sissies, while Anton is in Eli school. .She joins FGC Community Link Cambodia to the villages close by, teaching local children in an after school setting and also women about Health Issues in a village setting.

We consider us Asians as we live such a long time in Asia, eating rice as a staple food and not meat......

Our motto in life comes from a dear friend:

With common sense and God we
can accomplish a lot

""Ina"" Nanay- Balaas

We also had a real delight in a form of an old grandma staying with us. She is a real Matigsalug tribal Auntie. She is already 80 years old and was coming for a Cataract operation. The first time she came, she was totally blind but by now she could already see with one eye. She is so cute. Talking it away and you cannot understand a word. Ps. Emily, from the area, she stays, came with to help her. It was a real blessing having her in our house and to see how her life totally transform by giving her back her sight. God is good in providing an organization that does these operations for free.

She passed her recommendations with flying colours. No problem with this girl, as fit as a fiddle. They only did one eye at a time and when I took her back the following morning she was so happy as she know that after this she would be able to see again. Great was her joy when I came in the door. She said, “Kwapo and doctor.” (The doctor is so beautiful, hahahaha) She was so funny the whole way. She was chatting all he way and did not believe me that the Davao river pass in Davao. No the river is where she lives only!!!

We had to wait another month for the next operation. When time came she was here again and lived with us again. It was so nice to finally seeing her again. We grow to love her so much. She was like a bullet in a gun after the operation. The day after the operation she went for a check-up and went straight home to her place in the mountains. I did not even saw her. It was much later that I was able to see her in her place called Balaas. We went there for our clinic. All of a sudden she was there, beautiful tribal girl as she was. In her hands, freshly cooked corn from her garden. She was proudly telling us that she planted it herself, Amen to that!!

Over the years she became such a good friend. Always come for her check-up and just to say hello. Thanks to Emily and her husband Ps. Jun this lady was saved from just sitting at home and restored back to health. This is what happens when pastors become involved with their people. The other day I came all the way from Cambodia and visited Balaas again. Great was my joy to see Nanay again. Beautiful and tribal as once before. Not a year older. She is just on her way to the highway. My young friend said he will out walked her. Well he lost and she made it first up the hill. Never underestimate age, hahahaha. Nanay forever.
