NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas -- A Texas man is on a special mission to pay his respects to the victims of the Texas church shooting.

Miguel Zamora, of New Braunfels, is walking 40 miles to the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs while carrying a large and heavy cross.

He said he hopes to deliver the cross to the church to commemorate the 26 lives lost in the Nov. 5-mass shooting.
