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 16 2012

Here we are in coldddddd Namibia and freezing from head to toe. Hard to imagine that we are not sweating right now. Sooo nice to see the beauty of our country and all the fresh air that we can have. My skin is already like that off a lizard and scratching is part of an ongoing routine…….

Our time in Cambodia came to an end on a very busy time. First we had to clean the clinic out as Toinette had to close the clinic. Now I have a clinic in my garage……We are waiting in anticipation on what the Lord have in store for us when we go back home. Mordegai had the opportunity to squeezes in a quick outreach with the boys on bikes. We tried out a new route over the mountain and it was indeed a shortcut. We could go to 2 villages while there. There were not many people and in the one place only one family. We met a Spiritual man / Witchdoctor, who also asked us for meds. It was great to share to him, where we are from and why we are doing what we are doing. They were so grateful that we did come and help them as nobody else want to come and give something for them. So we got a bit of a plus there as a couple of guys willing to go where nobody else want to go.

To make things even better is the fact that we are only guys who love the Lord and want to show people the love of the Lord in a practical way. While doing it the motto is to have some great adventure as well. Who said that mission work need to be boring.

I visited a dear friend of mine in Baray and we went around seeing all the wells that were donated by our friend Mike from Ignite the World Missions. The whole day was filled by stories on how faithful the Lord is to the local people. Pastor Kea is teaching the people to love their church. Locals have a saying:”I love my temple”, and he is teaching them to say:”I love my church”. People will go to the temples and do work for free in their spare time as they value the temple as their church. Why not do the same for your church??? Well it is starting to sink into people’s hearts. In one community are a few, more wealthy people that left the temple and joined the church in their seeking to the real truth. They are now giving their spare time towards the church and money has been raised, enough to build a new church. Now tell me that is not what needs to happen???? A true Indigenous church rose up by the local Khmer people. No need for foreign money!!! God is indeed helping these people to come closer to Him.

When we help to build some wells, Ps.Kea assigns one of his cell group leaders to help and as a cell group they help the community. Now people can see that the Christian church is not only talking and preaching but also want to help people in a desperate time. People are very happy and welcome the help they get.

Currently we are on furlough in Namibia. Mordegai’s dad is seriously ill with Prostate cancer and all of us as a family are gathering here for the weekend to be with dad on Father’s day. We are not so sure if we will have another one together. Please pray for Oupa Kallie as he is suffering a bit right now. One thing for sure is that his life is right with the Lord and that makes things so easier. I know that the Lord is with him and he know that he will be with the Lord soon. Last night mum told us that they are now married for 38 years, so much for us to learn about being faithful for so long.

Toinette and the boys are in Swakopmund with her mum and enjoying their time at the beach. While it is cold inland the coast has pretty nice weather. I will still stay here for a few days and go to join them as well.

Thank you for praying for us as we are enjoying being here in Namibia though our hearts are at home in Cambodia. The Lord’s timing is always right for us all.


This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
It is the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:21-23
