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

Monday night again and this place cook. So hot in between rain storms. Hopefully the rain will be here soon. Clouds are building and if you come from Namibia, you will know, that we watch the sky with anticipation for rain. Once a Namibian farmer , always a Namibian farmer. We love rain escpecially if we do not get as much we get here in Asia. Must say that we love rain here in Cambodia as well. We do not get rain for months and when it comes, it pours. Sad to say, that there are horrible flooding , but otherwise also welcome for the farmers.

Hear in church yesterday that there are currently 400 churches in Phnom Penh itself and 5000 churches in the country. Wow we were amazed by that statistic as I travel to a lot of villages and see nothing Christian going on. If you ask about Christianity, they say they do not know Christ and normally ask about God. We need to work with more zeil to deliver the Gospel of Salvation to people. Pray that we will get more inspiration in getting out there, where nobody ever heard about God and tell them about it. Khmer New Year just ended and so many offerings made it to the Temples. Such a dark time in Cambodia.

Mordegai will tka e small trip up to Thor Ping Rosey to go and see how they do on the wells that we are sponsoring for them .Thanks to Mike from Ignite the World Missions, we could sponsor them with 4 wells. Need to be there with a whip otherwise they do not finish it. So I will take the bike and go there on really bad roads and check on them. Get some good practice in as well.

School started again today and Gideon went to school. Still we do not know what school Anton will be in. Please pray for it. School is so expensive that we hope we can get him in some of the not so expensive schools. Unfortunately all schools are full and we are on a wait list. PRay for Twans as she need to teach Gideon in the nights and believe me its not an easy task. We can just ask for your prayers in teaching him . He is doing good in school and do not need an assistand anymore in reading and English. We need to work really hard on the Maths.

We had a wonderful time on Saturday with most of the staff from Water of Life here at our house. There is nothing like good food, good worship and good friends, make for a great fellowship together. We even had a campfire going and we barbecued some Mars mellows. Can you believe it in this heat around a campfire?? Well it made for more fun. then the dancing started and Toinette was the teacher in some African songs with butt-whipping action........ Gideon and Anton also was in it for dancing and uncle Randy and Justin had to entertain the kids. Needles to say that they lost a couple of pounds in the end from all the sweating...... What a great night of lots of fun under this beautiful sky. Our God sure is a fun God.

Thank you sooo much for praying for us all. Make sure you go to either Facebook, Flickr or Blogspot to see all the action. Addresses below. I seem to struggle to get pictures up at Facebook , but all the pics are up on Flickr. Sorry for that.

May God bless you all so much in this week to come.

Yours truly


One day the well known Dr. David Livingstone received a letter from an enthusiastic congregation in England: ""Have you found a good road by this time along which we can travel with safety to the place where you are working?"" If so, we have here a couple of men who would like to join you.

Livingstone knew that prospective workers who were not absolutely dedicated would never be able to stand up against what they would meet along the way in Africa. Therefore he reported back in all seriousness:""If there are men who are prepared to come only if there are safe roads here, they should rather stay. I need people who want to come, even if there are no roads at all. People who want to keep their eyes only on the beaten track before them, instead of on Him, who is the Way, will not survive here.""
