UNDERGROUND CHURCH SIMULATION GAME CHAPTER 8 “CHAOS”

The GAG Regime has destroyed many meeting places, and has many in custody.

Directions to the church: Get on the Pennyrile Parkway, go to exit 6, go west (turn right if you came South, left if you came North.) Look for the Stadium of Champions on the left, turn right at the next light, and the church is on the right.
