Longview Mission Breaks New Ground

A big expansion started its first phase today for an east Texas rescue mission. A groundbreaking ceremony was held this morning at the Hiway 80 rescue mission in Longview. The mission will expand with a new chapel, a new distribution center, medical clinic and library, and a new two story dorm for men.

The mission was instrumental in helping hundreds of hurricane evacuees during their stay in east Texas.
