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

All the way from Africa

I thought it will be cold here and we were kinda ready for it. Hahahahaa, when we got of the plane in Johannesburg, our teeth were clapping against each other so hard that I had to keep my mouth closed as I was afraid I am going to lose my teeth. When we came in the house, the first thing the kids did when they walk into the home was to take of their shoes. Big mistake!!! They walked on their toes and complained about the cold. When they saw the nice thick blanket on the bed they ducked for cover and spend the rest of the day underthe blankets. Gideon said its very cold here in Africa....

The boys were stars on the flight from Phnom Penh to Kaula Lumpur. We had to wait for 12 hours for our next flight but we took a bus to the city and went to the Aquiruim. That was a real nice place to visit but it took us more than a hour to get there and one more hour back. We were very tired when we reached the airport again. Luckely we had to fly at 1.20am the morning. We reached Johannesburg by 6am in the morning. The uncle sitting next to toinette asked her if the boys were our grand children. Ugg that was alow one. Maybe I need to colour my beard a bid.........

We had a wonderful time with family in Johannesburg and enjoyed being with some of our family. We came here in Windhoek on Sunday, right in time for Toinette's 40th birthday. We had a big family reunion on Sunday and ate so much meat that we could not sleep well the night. Our stomachs are working overtime to get rid of the meat...... Another thing that hid us between the eyes, was how expensive things are here in Namibia. Wow could not imagin how things chanced in 2,5 years. Tomorrow we will head down to the coast and I can go and do some fishing, Amen to that.

Please keep in contact with us, we will be on email from now on more regular as we will go to Toinette's mum's place in Swakopmund.

Love from your Namibian friends.

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.""
