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

Uncle Pentalion


Cora took Mordegai to her neighbor and said the uncle has a problem with his leg for more than a year now. He has very poor bloodsirculation caused by smoking too much. He

stepped into some sticks and this developed into gangrene in his one foot. The other foot had a black toe as well. Took him to the doctor, who amputated the three toes, but two days after the operation we saw that something was wrong. The rest of the foot was black. Three days after that they amputated the leg under the knee.

I can only imagine what kind of pain he had but he was always in a good spirit and so sweet to work with. So thankful for the help. Make you feel so special but God is the one who need to be thanked. A Doppler test shown that he have no more bloodcirculation in his legs but we prayed that God will intervene and He was faithful. With careful medicines and hard work from their side the manage to spair the other toe, Praise God.

Meanwhile he is doing good and thank to God there is no pain. The leg is healing well and we're looking forward to the day that he also can receive a artificial leg. We pray that uncle Pentalion and his family will come to know God through this. We pray that they will join the bible study at Elvin and Cora's house.

Update on Uncle Pantaljon: Another year passed sinse we made him a deal to buy a artificial leg. We made another deal and this time he had to pay such a small amout that he could not refuse it anymore. Scott bought a pig from him and he gave the money. We took him to Lady of Victory to make the leg. The first 2 times were difficult but after a lot of encouragements from the helpers, he made it.

What a day it was when we walked out of the grounds, me with the cruthes and he with his new leg. Praise God. Since then he never looked back and by now the leg need some repairs. He is walking so much that the leg cannot keep up. God gave him back that was taken away from him 3 years ago. Praise God.

Sad to say but the day came when he was walking and just slams down. He was died when he hid the ground. A massive heartattack ends his life and that only 6 months after he got a second chance. We were so priveledge to give him back his life even it was such a short time. God is good to give back people's lives that was stolen from them.
