    What is Above Rubies?

    Above Rubies is a ministry to encourage women in their high calling as wives, mothers, and homemakers. Its purpose is to uphold and strengthen family life and to raise the standard of God’s truth in the nation.

    The name has been chosen from Proverbs 31.10 AMP, “A capable, intelligent and virtuous woman, who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far Above Rubies or pearls.”

    Who are Colin and Nancy Campbell?

    “Colin and I both are both blessed to come from a Godly Christian heritage. We are grateful for this legacy. I believe God’s plan is that every family build a godly generation so that His truth is passed on from one generation to the next.

    They say that the most difficult time of a relay race is to pass the baton to the next runner. We must be careful that we don’t drop the baton as we seek to impart God’s truth to the next generation…….”

    A biography of the Campbell family, how they have lived the Christian life, how they have been blessed by Godly Children and grandchildren.
    ABOVERUBIES.ORG

     

    Isn’t Above Rubies a lady’s magazine? Why would men want to attend the camp?

    This family conference will be a powerful time of encouragement for the whole family, as both Colin and Nancy share godly wisdom gleaned over many faithful years serving God in raiding their children.

    Check out the “Meat for Men” page, where Colin shares a vision of Uncompromising Manhood for married men and singles alike.

Christian Homeschoolers Family Summer Getaway

Picture

This is a reminder that the Getaway is in the not too distant future so now is the time to be booking it in on your calendar and booking your space at camp.  Remember, you can camp for extra days if you want to.  Some of our regular families spend a few extra days in camp enjoying an extended holiday time.

We had our biggest camp so far last Feb, so past the word around, share the love, and invite some more to join us in Feb 2016.  Below is the brochure with all the details on it.

The Drinnan Clan

Taupo

what’s happening …

The annual Christian Homeschoolers Family Summer Getaway is for Christian homeschooling families to connect with other families for mutual encouragement and friendship. It aims to be …

like-minded

There’s nothing more encouraging than knowing we are not alone in this awesome task of discipling our children at home. Meeting with others who are going through the same triumphs and struggles can lift a tired soul! And how important it is, for our children to have like-minded friends.

family-centred

This is a getaway for the whole family. Enjoy a weekend away or extend your time at the campsite and have a family holiday as well. This is not a camp/conference in the traditional sense, it is families relaxing together.

budget-conscious

Raising a family on a single income is no easy task but God is faithful. So being mindful of this, we have chosen to go to a conventional campsite. There are limited cabins available also. We will let you organise your own family’s food which is much cheaper than paying someone else to cook it and you can meet your own budget requirements.

fun-filled

We have a programme of fun games and activities for the young and not so young, and of course, we are camped right on the shores of beautiful Lake Taupo for swimming, boating, etc! We have a hall on site for fellowship, Sunday morning devotional, or in case it rains.

Friday

7:00 pm Meet in function room, introduce each family

8:00 pm Supper

Saturday

9:30 am Games for all who choose to participate

10:30 am Morning Tea

Sunday

Please pack up your cabin by 10am

10.00 am Devotional Hour – some singing and some sharing

11:30 am Final pack up of tents etc and last swim at lake

any questions?
