The people of Ranquitte, Haiti, are served through a partnership of Yates Baptist Church with Christian Flights, International. This project provides food, clothing, hygiene items, medicines, medical supplies, and school supplies for Yates mission trips, as well as funds for hurricane relief, agriculture education, and teacher sponsorship for the village of Ranquitte. Generous donations to this project and fund raisers have provided the means for building many homes, providing medical and dental care, and sharing the gospel by Yates mission teams.
