Sam meets Sam Grottis

Sam attends a presentation by Sam Grottis, southern Africa director of World Relief, at Xenos Christian Fellowship in Columbus, OH about the humanitarian relief and economic development work being done in Mozambique. Afterwards Sam asked him how a software developer in Columbus, Ohio could help. "In the villages of Mozambique there is no electricity, no running water and no sewers, but often when I go out to encourage the volunteers our meetings are interrupted when they receive an SMS message! How can we use cell phones to capture more valuable information in a more timely way and establish two-way communications with a distributed volunteer force of over 3000 people?"
