Last week I found myself quoting something I learned years ago while working at Fuge summer camps. I started thinking about all I had learned during my four summers working for the Lifeway camps.
1. Always own at least 10% of the problem. At least that much is your own sin, probably more. Coming into a disagreement with this attitude will help diffuse the situation better and will help you come to a resolution quicker.
2. Everyone you meet is on a journey with God. Your goal is to determine where they might be and help them get one step closer.
3. Always be on time. It might cost you a dollar.
4. A good leader handles a lot more problems than you will ever know about. Your support and kindness goes a long way to encourage them, even if they aren’t able to tell you.
5. When you stick a group of strong, young, single believers together in such a close setting, someone is going to fall in love!
6. Fuge friends are friends for life.
7. There are Fugers all over the world doing amazing things for God. Having worked Fuge connects you to an amazing network.
8. Once a Fuger, always a Fuger. Unless you got fired for some reason.
9. Working for Fuge provides you with all the bags and jackets you will ever need!
10. Saying that you worked for Fuge gives you an instant credibility.
I’m so thankful for that chapter of my life and for the memories!
