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 Oct.13 2014

Hey there everyone
What a day!!! Was cutting wood with my chainsaw and was having some lesson to learn. We are quickly to buy a brand name that is good, like a Stihl. (for you that do not know, its the best make, or so they say) My branded one is called a STILL, no wonder that it only last about 2 hours and then it is still........We are so quick to adopt a believe, if it looks good, but we do not know if it is the original or a fake. So many times we go for the fake as we do not have money or just do not want to believe the original version, the Bible, anymore. Had to stop every 30min to refuel and give the machine a cool down. Just like us, need refuel and a break. At the end of the 2 hours it is a problem to get started again, as the Stihl is now Still. It is hard to stay on the right track and if we fall off, it is very difficult to get up again.
That is why we need to go for the original from the start. The Bible is our original version and anything else is fake. In Cambodia even the original is fake, so very difficult to see if you buy the right one. Be on your guard and investigate first when people come with a fake version of the original.

Please pray for my good friend Carl laCasse. He is a photographer that I met here on some of my trips. Currently he is in hospital, and not sure if he is operated already. Here is a a small note from his wife, Kay.
Carl's heart has been severely damaged in the lower chamber .. They call this the "Widow Maker" (imagine getting that news) because most don't survive when 100% blocked there. That area of his heart is not working at the moment. We need it to "wake up" If it is just in shock from all that has happened.. he can regain some of that usage. If it is from the lack of 0 2.. it will never pump. That said.. He still has three areas that are working beautifully. And as long as we keep those areas clot free etc.. They will continue to do so with out problem. He will now be on heart meds and other meds the rest of his life... The good news is.. that by changing our life styles, eating way better, exercising , finding ways to channel stress. He should feel better than he has felt in years once he is strong enough to do all of that. This is a new journey, a wake up call for us all to take better care of ourselves. A reminder that God is our healer and protector and always with us. A confirmation that material things come and go but family can not be replaced. Thank you thank you thank you for your prayers for my Carl LaCasse

Can you also please pray for Gideon's (junior)allergies. It is really distracting him during school and even less work gets done.. He is enjoying his time at school with new friends. Continue to pray for my leg as it is very painful when Toinette tries to bend it.
We praise God for the spiritual growth of the young believers in The village where Toinette and rest of the FGC team reach out. Pray for the staff for wisdom and guidance as they share especially  during fellowship and value class on Sundays. The students are asking a lot of questions. Praise God.

Continue to lift up Samai as he is busy reaching out to the tribal people up North. He is doing now medical as well, as I am not there. Remarkable man of God. Pray for his safety while traveling long distances with his small bike. 

Mordegai and Toinette
