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

Kabal Domrey to Kratie in May 2011

We took the bikes and went all the way from Phnom Penh to Kabal Domrey. We slept the first night in Rum Jopon village after visiting the 400AD temples. It was nice to be amongst the people that we start to befriend right now. We did a small medical clinic and afterwards just rest and enjoyed our time. They even made us a very nice meal and did not want to be paid for it. Just shows me that they start to accept us and that are welcome in their little village. The next morning we took the road through the mountain towards Kratie. We had no idea where to go to but we were determined to get there. We made it in 7 hours all the way to the Mekong river to Kratie.

We were amazed by the amount of deforestation that is happening due to the fact that the rich just take land and pay-off bribes and plunder the trees in order to plant rubber trees. everywhere we can see the roads lead to new areas being plundered by these people. Sad but true.

We stayed in Kratie for the night and returned the next day back to Kabal Domrey. We got lost a couple of times but found our way as John and I started to regocnise some landmarks from a mission before. We made it to the river and had a wonderful swim before we hid the road again back to Baray and then towards Phnom Penh again.

What a nice time this was to see the people again and explore more areas that is not even on the map.
