Hi, my name is Wilson Wong and I'm a placement student from Seneca studying social service work. Over the course of the past two years, I've been working and serving with amazing people at TCM for amazing kids and families. My first placement term I worked with Jeff and Eliot at Willowtree. It was my first placement opportunity and I used it to get my feet wet. I was also given the opportunity to be a summer intern for Sonshine Day Camp 2014. I met lots of other interns and learned to work in a team. More importantly I learned to keep God's interests in mind and not my own. There were times when I felt like giving up but the people at TCM helped support me and they also encouraged me when I felt discouraged. My final placement was a full year at St. James Town and Kingston-Galloway. I had the opportunity to work with the staff at TCM, I learned a lot from their strong and loving attitude towards God and the kids. They were so transparent with me and they were vulnerable with their struggles in ministry. Through this experience, I was able to build strong friendships united in God. Although my term for placement is over with TCM, I do not regret one bit because I learned more about God through the servant attitudes that each and every person at TCM has for their ministry and God. I hope and pray for the best for TCM as well as looking forward to witnessing God's great works using TCM.
