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 May 09'2011

Just to give you a rundown of what happened in this last week. Had so much time to spend with good friends and build such good relationships that we need to teach the people on how to meet our Savior. Everything here go good with a good relationship. Being out in the countryside with good friends, what can we ask for more. I do my little part , my friends do some and the locals do some and together we help to further the Kingdom.

So nice to hang out with my mate Brett and all the people at the Rock Mountain. Brett installed a new water filter for the people as they do not have clean water. They only drink water from the ponds there and have lots of stomach problems. Maybe in this coming week we will try and dig a well. The problem is that there are no husbands there as most of them ran away to mistresses when the girls become pregnant. So we will bring the boys from Water of Life and let them do some hard labour for the Lord. Nothing like some hard work for "soft hand" city boys..........
While there, one of the guys came with the day's catch of Lizards. I could save 2 for the boys and they were so happy. Absolutely love it out there. I also try to cut a couple of big rocks but that is not an easy job. End up with a couple of good scars as rocks were flying. Want to go and have my exercise every week and hammer a few rocks.

Please pray for Brett and his helper to have wisdom in how to help the people in their everyday need.

Went out with friend Grahame and AOC (Asian Outreach Cambodia) to the province and help the local believers to build a church. What a nice day this turned out to be. Amongst local believers that share a common goal and that is to further the Kingdom of Christ amongst their own people. Another church group from far away came together to help build a new church with fellow believers. The church was planted 3 years ago but today a building was added. A whole church building for only U$300. Why do we need to build churches for more????? Seeing these believer's joy and enthusiasm, I was overwhelmed by joy myself. This indeed a day to remember.

Went out on search for a broken well. One of our friends befriended this widow in times of real despair. He was filming on the old dump while he saw how her husband got killed by a bulldozer and that inspired him to help these people. On a visit he discovered that the do not have good water in the village but it turn out to be a broken well or pump.

We went out by truck on small little roads and later over rice paddies to the village. The pump was broken and we bought a new one but could not really fix the big problem. We can only hope that the water table came up higher soon and they can have better water. We will go out again later to access the problem better.
Nice to help people in such a practical way and show them that God care.

This week I will go again to the mountain of Phnom Chi in my efforts to get this place on a map. We want to get familiar with the place in dry season as Rainy season is on hand, then all hell break lose. The jungle gets overcrowded with gold-seekers and it will be a good time to help people in their daily struggle and building relationships in order to teach them on God. We need to get a GPS and plot some points for us to travel as we get lost on all the little roads. If someone have a GPS laying around, we would love to have one and keep us on track, thanks. These places are not on the map at all as this is real jungle. People are push deeper and deeper inside as big companies push them of their land to develop the gold sites. Corruption plays a big role here with paying bribes for land. This is a real problem where greed plays a real big role.
Read 2 stories from individuals that came with me on the situation inside. Any comments welcome:

Thank you for praying for us all. Family i doing great and we just hang on till we will be home in June 20 in Windhoek. We will return again on July 31 to Cambodia, just a quick visit to see our families. Hope to see some of you again when at home.

From all of us
Mordegai and kie
