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

Prayer items for April 7''2010

Sorry that Monday night we were not online. I was out in the province with a pastor and his members. We had some fun and sweat severely. It is so hot here that you dehydrate without doing anything . By the night time you are so thirsty that you can just drink water and never stop. We need to make it cool as the water outside , is only good for coffee. Luckily they had ice around and we could put a couple of bottles on the ice. During the first day I pulled a couple of teeth. the village is pretty big and as it is around here, I was the first ever white guy in the village. Can almost not believe it. Its only 40km outside Phnom Penh. the children were quite afraid of this ""barang"" (white person) That night we had a wonderful time, under the stars. We watched Pink Panther and then the Jesus movie. Pastor Kea did some sharing after wards and all the people listened to him. He told me later that the people are so much interested about the Gospel that he cannot keep up training some leaders. That is very encouraging to hear.

We slept under the stars as well, it was to hot for inside. It reminded me of our days on the farm .We did sleep outside every night as it was to hot to sleep inside. Sure enough it was sweaty to go and sleep but later it became nice and cool. Love this kind of life so much. A lot of people came and we did a small medical outreach in the morning. Luckily I had pastor and his youth to help me. So many places to go where the people really need some help. Everyone is so poor that they cannot afford basic medicine. Some show me the x-rays or ultrasound but they cannot afford to buy the meds. Pray with us that we will make more time to seek out these villages and go and help the people. People are not only hungry for food but also for the Word of God.

I also had the privileged to go and visit my good friends Ralph and Kim Lewis in the jungles of Prea Vehea. We had such a good time of fellowship. I helped out with pulling a couple of teeth and cleaning some as well. We had a good time testing out the Landy and the winch. Need to be ready for the rainy season. Please also pray for Ralph and Kim as they also go through a lot of stuff in their ministry under the Koy tribal people.

Tomorrow I will be away with 2 other guys for some trekking into the mountains in the South of the country. Pray for our safety for we need to travel a long way tomorrow on the highway and when we come back again. The traffic here is very bad and dangerous. Pray also for Toinette and the children as they have holiday and stay here at home.

It is Khmer New Year here and for 2 weeks nothing is going on. All the people are in the province with their families and nobody in the city. Makes for a nice and quite atmosphere here in the city. Nothing else to do though as everything is closed.

Keep in touch for we love to hear from all of you.
Mordegai for us all


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.""
