Hiway 80 Rescue Mission Completes New Chapel

An East Texas Rescue Mission adds a brand new chapel to its operation.

Today, there was a ribbon cutting at Hiway 80 Rescue Mission in Longview for the newly-built chapel. It will hold about 120 people, much bigger than the mission's previous chapel.

Hiway 80 Rescue Mission helps men in need with food, shelter, and clothing.

Reverend Tony Chung, the Executive Director of Hiway 80 Rescue Mission says, "We're really excited. As you look around there's a lot of room, it's really bright in here and it's just kind of tells the story of what we do."

Chung also says the next step for the Rescue Mission is building a two-story dormitory with a medical clinic and computer lab.
