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 Dec.8 2014



Not so sure why Mondays are always Blue, but phhheeeoooo we made this one. Maybe because the weekend was to nice and we do not want to start the week.
 
The Warrens from Cape Town arrived here in Cambodia and stayed with us for 4 days. Abraham and his wife, Chantel and their 5 children will be here for a while. We kicked off the visit with a birthday for Christen and then it was Chantel's the next day. They stayed for a couple of days to re-adjust to time and weather. We got them a beautiful house for rent and they occupied it on Sunday. Went there this morning and they are still doing fine.

A small update on Anti ​ Gladys​. Continue to pray for her, please:
I thought I would give you a quick update.
It is now 5 weeks since my second surgery.   Both incisions have healed nicely.  The second is still tender, and my arm movement, though good, still is limited in the upward and outward stretches.   At times there is a burning sensation, but that too is getting less.   And improvement is constant.

And now we have been contacted by the hospital for  the next stage.  I have a chemo oncologist appointment on Tuesday 9th, and a radiotherapy oncologist appointment for Thursday 11th.   At those appointments they will talk about the type of cancer that was removed, and the different treatments offered, their plusses and minuses.   And then we need to come home and digest all that we will have heard.    At this stage we definitely know that I will be having radiotherapy, and hormone therapy.    It has been a hard walk for me in coming to terms with what lies ahead, and I am very thankful that we have had this long pause.   I have needed it mentally.   And now I am fine and able to look at whatever reports we are given.  Praise God.--

​ Mordegai's leg is doing much better, since we talk last. I already started to walk with one crutch again and can put full weight on it again.​ Seems to me its bending a bit better already as well, or maybe I just want it to be like this.........
Please pray for Gideon's sneezing in the mornings. It effect his whole day at school and work as well. Pray that we can get to know what gives him this allergy. School is still a bit longer and then they have a 2 week break. We need that as well.



Was great to have my long time friend/brother, Sonny here again. He came for some business but also to catch up with us. As leader over us, he is a very close friend and with Angela and Argie we had many coffees to drink.  We are friends already for 18 years in Asia. Such a long time to know a real Chinees/Malaysian. Never I would have dream that that will happen to me. God truely gives us a new family when we leave ours behind at home. He provided ri​ght from the start in 1996 a friend, Angela, to us. Now we work together. God rocks.




Thank you very much for praying for us. We know that most off you are on holiday but we appreciate your prayers.
Love
Rossouw-clan
