Strong Roots's desire is to build a community centre/church building on a nearby plot of land that was purchased. However due to government regulations they have been unable to begin construction yet on this land.

The spiritual care of the community is a continual priority for Strong Roots, and so they currently hold regular church services on the rooftop of the Oasis hotel, as well as regular bible studies and Sunday school programs for the children.

Yapak Community Church

Belen is a mom of a sponsored child Maribel. She kept inviting her mom to come to a bible study. She came one Monday night and kept on going. She gave her life to Jesus. Last April, Belen had to travel for 15 hours to go visit her mom’s funeral. Unfortunately, Belen was taken by terrorists a week after her arrival. She and 20 others were taken to a remote village. Some were killed and some were raped yet she kept her trust in the name of the LORD, her God.

At one point, a terrorist pointed a gun at a young lady, Belen placed her body in front to try to save the lady’s life. Why would you do that, the gunman asked? I know that I’m going to heaven but I’m not sure if this girl is. Belen kept on taking about her faith in Christ to the terrorists. The terrorists asked her if she wanted to be freed, only if the seven young ladies can come with me, she said. The terrorists freed her and the 7 ladies. God is good.
