Ruth Yara, from the Ialibu-Pangia district, is the wife of pastor George Pipiki Yara, a pastor of an Independent Fundamental Baptist church who has been serving in the ministry for almost 27 years.

In 2011, the family moved from a Baptist Church in Pangia to Faith Way Baptist Church at Gerehu in Port Moresby.

City life proved to be quite a challenge, especially with the pastor earning less than K400 while five of their children are in school.
