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

Whatever Lord-May 2010

We literally went out of our way and lots of times off the nice road, not to miss the very big pools of mud and water. It was a real fun driven outreach to the West part of Cambodia. Joel Bender, my Dental Guru and his friend Ken Foster came and visit from the States and we were out to share the Gospel in whatever way works. Our first mission was to get as close to a certain mountain call Phnom Chi. Driving like real maniacs for the whole day; we were faced by the idea of foreign land. To go or not to go, that was the question?? Ps. Kea said” WE cannot go””, he shouldn’t say that, as that was what I was looking for, a motivation to continue. And so our adventure into foreign land started.

We went all the way up on a very bad road to visit a friend of us in a small village. He took us from there to an even smaller village and from there we went into the jungle on roads that nobody wants to go. We really tested the Landy to its limits and had to use the winch a couple of times to get us out of the mud. We had so much fun in the mud. We did not know where we are going but we wanted to go to the mountain to go and see how people dig for gold. We met some about 3 families that stay in the jungle and shared the good news with them and gave some meds to them. Then one of them came with us and showed us a small village of 20-30 families. The road was very testing but the Landy ate it up like sweet cake. Nice to have such a good car, like I say;”This is not a good car but a God car”. When we arrived there the people say that this is the very first car that visited the village as well as the first foreigners that made it there. PtL

Now that is what I want to hear. We share the Gospel to people that never heard the Gospel and we could gave out very precious medicines as no one have access to it. We made a pledge that we will come back and hunt for even more villages in the jungle in order to help people out there. On our way back we had to stil stop at another village and we gave out some meds as promised to them earlier. It was already dark when we left there to go back to our host in Kabal Domrey. Joel and Ken did some needed ministry with the believers and I showed a movie to the kids, before settling in for the night. we were tired of a full 13 hour day on the road.

The next morning we had clinic and Joel did dentistry and removed a couple of bad teeth, while I did some medical stuff. I had some of the youngsters from Ps. Kea’s church, helping me to give out meds. They are such a need bunch of kids. After lunch time we moved again back to Thor Piang Rosey another 40km away.
Again we did not miss any waterhole and made sure the Landy was full of mud……. It was nice to be back in the village again and we got ready for the night as we came there very late. That night we watched;” The Gods must be crazy 2 “” and everyone enjoyed it. Ken said that he had to come all the way to Cambodia to watch this movie, wow….

Ignite the World Ministries donated some money for us to build wells in the village and the could only finish one so far but must report that the water is so clear that anyone can use the water now without getting sick. Our clinic was a good one with lots of people. Joel and Ken did a lot of dental stuff and we could help a lot of people. We said goodbye to them just before lunch. We had a good 2 days of outreach and could share a lot to people about Christ.

We also went to Siem Riep to the Anghor Wat temples. These temples are very beautiful and so impressive, just a same it was build to honor Hindu and Buddhist gods. We walked around ancient temples from period of 9-12 century, in 40degree C. We nearly got cooked but enjoyed every minute of it. It was just amasing to see how the build these temples and it is still there to see for all. On our way back to Phnom Penh we visited another temple that was build in the year 603AD. Quite a bid of history there.

After all of this touring around we were back at home again and the children were very happy to see me. Now we are getting ready to go on another outreach to the North, next week.

Till next time
