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!! June 2010

Wow it’s so cold out here in Namibia. When we landed in Johannesburg, we were freezing on our way to my uncle’s house. The first thing the kids did was to take their shoes of at the front door…..big mistake. They walked tiptoed and complained about the cold. Then Anton discovered the bed with a very thick blanket and duck for the covers. There they stayed for the rest of the day.
Back in Namibia, we felt so at peace as we were not home for such a long time. The nature is so beautiful and the air so clean and crisp. We forgot what a clean place look like….. Everywhere you go, everything is so clean and organized. You can walk across the road without being attacked by a Lexus, bike, bicycle or ox-cart. When you look down the street you can cross and nobody come upstream…. Well it’s organized but so very expensive. We are amazed how people can live here with such prizes around. I never thought I will say it but Cambodia is cheaper than our own beloved Namibia. Never will I complain again over a prize in Phnom Penh!!
Gideon just wants to go fishing while Anton is playing around. I got him a fishing rod and he is doing well. Must just learn to wait for the fish to bite. The weather makes it difficult to go fishing as it is so cold here. The boys want to swim but give up after a couple of minutes and shiver so much that we need to rub their bodies to get the blood flow back. Anton does not care as he is so tuff and love the water. Poor Gideon is the first out of the water and put about 3 jackets on top of each other and still shivers.
Please continue to pray for us as we adjust here in our own country. We will be off internet for a while now as we need to go to the capital and share a bit with our church. Keep us in prayers as we need to reconnect with friends and new people in church. Seems to me there are not so many people that still know us here as we were away for such a long time.
We greet you from a nice and cold Namibia, the Cambodians will not know what we are talking about, but just imagine yourself wearing a jacket and shoes with socks……..
Love from all of the Namibians
