Melissa Crutchfield, Shannon Trilli, and Nyamah Dunbar have become leaders at the United Methodist Committee on Relief, and the unique challenges and rewards of their work have led them to become best friends too. All three work with programs like Imagine No Malaria (http://ImagineNoMalaria.org) and they credit The United Methodist Church for giving them a chance to make a big difference in the world as women under the age of 40. Dunbar says, "Our African counterparts are surprised at how young we are. And they even comment on that. 'You are so young and you're doing so much, and you're already responsible for all these programs.' So indirectly the church is also presenting a face and really breaking some ceilings not only at the head office level, but even towards the partners in the field." Trilli came to work at UMCOR in her 20s, just out of the Peace Corps. "UMCOR and Imagine No Malaria gave myself and my best friends, my colleagues, an incredible opportunity. And I think many young people in our church are looking at us saying, 'We want to do that, too. Can we join you?'" Learn more at http://UMCOR.org.
