United Methodist Church Superintendent, Larry Davies; Larry Davies is in charge of more than 80 Methodist churches in our area and says the decision on what to do with the refugees isn’t ours to make. “Biblically we need to help people in need and if they do come over here it is our duty as Christians to help them in any way we can. It’s also our duty to help them whether they’re over here or over there,” said Davies.
