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 Feb.2012

Feels like such a long time since we last wrote you guys. Well nothing else than the usual has happened in the Rossouw household. The new year brought a few challenges along with it and we try to go through bit by bit.

Mordegai is down with his 2nd bash of Malaria in 2 months and in between he also had a Hernia surgery done. Together with all of this he is not a happy chappie….. Cabin-fever set in already a few weeks ago as he needs to stay at home for at least 2 months without climbing on a bike or into his Landy for some fun and ministry in the jungle. Oeg that is a tall order to handle.

Ps. Kea is reporting that the little cell group in Thor Piang Rosey is doing very well. He went there the other day to preach and was amazed how many new believers were there. Seems to me we just need to stay away from the people and then God can work. We can be such a hindrance some times. It is hard to be here, stuck in the city and not allowed to go out and see for myself, but I know God sometimes keep us away from His work. All the Glory to Him.

After listening to the visual bible stories on Saturday mornings at Value Life Clinic, the moms and children can now also receive a "spa lice treatment” at our clinic :-)  They love their shiny lice free hair. This is just to show that we can reach out with God’s love in such simple ways.
 Please pray for Peack (Diamond). He is 3 months old and very malnourished. His mom first brought him to the clinic at 1 day old, then we immediately transported him to hospital as he was very lethargic and cyanotic (blue). He was on O2 in hospital but the mother left the hospital the next day, saying she was not comfortable in the hospital. We've tried to see baby frequently.

His mother says she doesn't want him, her other children are in orphanage. We are concerned that she might not be feeding him enough and he has facial features pointing towards fetal alcohol syndrome. We need to pray earnestly and ask God's wisdom. Kerri and Meng (the social work team of the clinic) will go for a home visit this week.

Hope School has Camp week this week. Gideon and Anton's year groups are camping at school. Toinette need to help full time at the school this week. Watching Gideon in school has brought a deeper realization of how much he has to face each day, it is not easy for him and you can see how he has to calm himself down many times, how he struggles with all the stimulation. His classmates love him and us thank God for the children who really reach out to Gideon. Please pray for our little soldier.
We can report that Gideon went to the Country club where they could go on roller blades, swim and finally ride horses. This was a fun filled day for mum and Gideon. Anton’s group is into building pirates stuff and every day he come home with something new. So much fun at school, wish I was back at school…….

Thank you so much for praying for us as a family. We really appreciate your prayers and cannot do without it.
