Students are using what they learn in class for a research project to help bring safe, clean water to people in Liberia.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - A Texas minister is living on a raft at a lake in Dallas, as part of a fundraiser to support efforts to bring clean drinking water to African communities.

Pastor Todd Phillips will stay on the raft until he has raised nearly $2.3 million for his non-profit, called The Last Well, to go toward its work in Liberia.

Calvin College partnered with Phillips' organization, and students are using what they learn in class for a research project to help bring safe, clean water to people in Liberia.
