A few years ago Brayan Leon approached Area Missionary, Juan Ayala, during a Youth Club and asked if he could get a picture with him, to which Juan responded with a yes. When Juan asked him what the picture was for, Brayan told him he was working on a project involving mentors, and he saw Pastor Juan as a mentor of his. At this time, Brayan was an entering freshman in High School, and he had been part of Mission Centers of Houston for quite some time. He was in a group of young people that relocated to the Gano mission the Fletcher Mission Center was consolidated into it. Brayan recalled being nervous because of the change, but yet he remained connected to MCH.
Brayan has been one of the most faithful youths that is involved with the Gano youth. During his time at MCH, he attended our after-school youth program which included being mentored and discipled with the word of God. Brayan has also volunteered by serving at Gano on his days away from school. In summer he’s been part of the Gano Street Mission Crew, a missionary internship program designed for middle and high schoolers willing to serve their community in all ministries that MCH offers. This summer will be his third summer serving with the Gano Street Mission CrewThis May, Brayan became the first youth to graduate from
High School while being connected with Mission Centers of Houston. Brayan is also a recipient of the 2023 Mission Centers of Houston college scholarship and is planning now attending the University of Houston. This is what Brayan had to say about MCH: “Good Day, thank you so much! I’m grateful for everything y’all have done for me to push me towards this success. Everyone there has truly had an amazing impact on my life, and I look forward to continuing to be around everyone and working hard for the future.” We are so proud of Brayan and are extremely grateful to God for what He’s done in Brayan’s life.
