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 prayers Nov.15'2010

Just arrived home from the province and nice cool rain is on us again. Front yard a bit flooded but nothing serious. So nice to know that we are still safe away from any dangerous things like floods and volcanoes and what else. God is good to us all. I went with our director of Water of Life to Pre Veng today. We just wanted to have some fun as well as check on the work that is been done there over this year. We arrived there at noon and after we stopped we all 3 had a haircut at the local barber, which is the local contact for us there. He set up his little chair under a tree and cut hair for 0.75U$ around R5 a head. Like Craig said:" I traveled a long and far way to come and get a haircut here in the jungle of Cambodia." The people are really open for the Gospel in the area and are so happy that we can be there helping them out. Please pray for this little project as Channa and Ti-con need to lead these people. Pastor Hong will oversee the project but need to let these guys take things over and lead the local group.
We could also pray for a young girl that is very sick. Became sick a while ago and seems like she is getting epileptic fits but not so sure about it. We will try and get her into the city to check out what is wrong. Pray that she can get a paper from the local leader in order for them to come to town.

Please pray for our outreach to the Jungle this coming Wednesday. I will take Craig with as well. Reinette from SA will join us as well to learn a bit more on "jungle meds."Pray for good weather as it can change things dramatically when it rain. It's now a long time that I could not go into Phnom Chi as the water was to high. Seems to me we had a break in the weather but it started to rain again today.

Pray for Toinette for wisdom as she get a few midwifes that are long term missionaries here, that want to come and help. She want to keep it as small as possible but she is already so busy. God is really blessing this clinic a good deal. Praise God for Vanessa that started a small handicraft store for the ladies on the dump. they come together every Tuesday and do some handicrafts and get a U$1 for the effort. It seems a small amount to you all but that is better than they make now in a full days work in order to buy food. Here they can get training and do something that they can take home and sell for something more. We are very excited for this project in order to help the very poor people that do not have any work.

Good to talk to you again, sorry for the silents but they just fixed my internet tonight. Keep writing.

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.""
