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 June 25 2013



Hey there
Monday night prayers come to you a bit early again, as I leave for the North in the morning. Please pray for safe travels as I do the whole trip on bike. Please pray for Toinette and the children to be safe as they stay behind. Ouma Paula will be here in a week, pls pray for her as she prepares to leave her home for 2 months to come and visit us. 

Some of you that is in this part of the world already heard this sad news but it continues.  I met this man, when he came to Siem Reap and showed him a house to rent. This is real sad accident but God is good. I passed the car and bus on the way to Kampong Tom and told my friend that no-one can get alive out of that pile of rubble. God is good to save 2 children's lives out of a total wreck. Just to show that these roads we have here, is a real danger and buses do not care for people at all. Every time we are on the roads, we need prayer. Pray that this madness on the roads will stop.

The 2 girls on the father's lap, is the one's that survived the accident.

This is the report in the newspapers, so just follow the link below to read the whole story.  
South Korean Missionary family killed in car crash on June 18. After two and a half years of diligently studying the Khmer language in Phnom Penh, the Bang family are on their way to set up a home and ministry in Siemreap when a tourist bus crashed into their vehicle. Both parents and their two children died. The other two, the eldest and youngest, survive but seriously injured. The two children killed and the other one injured attend Hope International School in Phnom Penh


My friend from Interserve send the following report on the girls: 
Statement on the health of Da Jun Bang and Da Eun (Esther) Bang. 
Sunday 23rd June, 2013. The latest news is that both Da Eun (Esther) and Da Jung are doing well. They are stable and the medical staff are considering transferring them to hospital in Korea within the next 2-3 days. This is a non-emergency transfer for their ongoing recuperation.
Some details on their health situation:
• Both girls have had serious concussions but it appears with limited and non-serious bleeding. They are not expected to have any ongoing neurological issues.
• Esther has had her left arm amputated close to or at the shoulder. She is in a lot of pain but is talking and eating well.
• Da Jung seems to only have the concussion with no known internal injuries and no injury to extremities. She is not speaking yet and is still sleeping a lot. But the medical staff do not anticipate any long term neurological damage.
• Both girls bodies are slowly recovering from the massive trauma they have experienced and Esther is in significant pain.
Prayer points: For their ongoing recovery especially related to pain for Esther and that Da Jung will become more alert. And for the process in moving them to Korea and the ongoing medical support there.

May God love you and hold you in this week to come. 
Love from the Rossouws
