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 Feb. 03 2014



My husband gave me a stern look and send me to the computer with the following words: Please go and write that update now. So:
Dis met n hart wat oorloop wat ek vanaand voor julle kom sit. (My heart is overflowing as I come and sit in front of you tonight) 

I went to a very special graduation ceremony last Friday night and in sharing a bit of that night with you I pray you would be left with some of the awe and wonder I felt driving back home. 

I've been sharing and teaching on women' s  health issues with the staff of  a very upclass cafe and training center . This is a Christian NGO that train and employ young women who have been involved in sex trafficking and the sex trade. The percentages of children sold into the sex trade here is staggering and many in this culture don't see it as wrong, it is a privilege to bring in money to your family.

 Upon graduation they receive a diploma in hospitality with a specialty in cake decorating. Then when I say cake decorating I don't mean like we learned when we want to be a bit fancy we drag n fork over the icing, no beautiful creations and works of art. What a privilege to  see the enormous effort put into their growth and healing. Wednesday mornings was the highlight of my week, (Gideon's too as he got a free cupcake every time). They were so eager and open to learn and ask questions.

As each one of these precious women received their diploma they were overcome with emotion. The director had a personal word of encouragement for each of them. I sat there thinking for some this might be the first ever real achievement in their lives and you could see they were standing tall and proud but so humble at the same time. So often the darkness here around us just seems too much  and here and there you see one small candle light  BUT here it looked like God switched on the floodlights chasing out the darkness. 

And then the highlight of the evening for me was when I looked around and saw some of the men in the audience overcome with emotion. I rest my case !





Please continue to pray for Apu and Pro. Anthony, Hannah and Mordegai goes there daily and Apu  is getting more and more exercise but he is scared to sit up. Pro is starting to walk!!  Mordegai bought a walking ring yesterday and he is using it. He has no bladder and bowl control and when he starts to walk this is very embarrassing for him. 
See a movie of Pro walking:

So back to me driving home afterwards, I repented of my heart of stone, pleading for a heart of flesh, believing  again our God is Greater, our God is Higher than any other and to set my eyes on Him not the darkness around us.

Love 
Toinette

Ps from Mordegai
please pray for Anthony , Hannah and me when we ride tomorrow to Kabal Domrey. We will ride by bike. some other friends will join us halfway. Please pray also for the christian couple in Thor Piang rosey. The man cut a tree and it fell on him, injured him pretty badly. I will see tomorrow how he is doing.

Esp that you'll make it through the rough roads M and that you'll make it through the long wait, T. Praying hard that the boys can sleep even tho this must emotionally unsettle them so. Wishing so hard SR was a lot closer to PP ... LOVE from Mathew Zoo!!!
