The vision of our ministry is to go around the world and preach the Gospel. Helping people and serving God is our first priority. It is God’s will for us to: proclaim good news to the poor, proclaim freedom for the prisoners, and to set the oppressed free. Our mission is to reach as many lives as we can by ministering in rehab centers, nursing homes, schools, hospitals and everywhere God opens the door for us. We use this opportunity to serve people both spiritually and financially. Also, we desire to encourage souls to reach to the Higher Mountain in their lives. As David says in Ps 61:2, “Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.”
Natalia Artigue was born and raised in Ukraine in a strong Christian family. In 1991, she moved to the United States where she graduated from college. Later, she married Edward Artigue. They reside in the state of Tennessee. With their previous experiences of going through the low valleys in their lives and paying the price to the higher mountain, their desire now is to share with people God’s love and God’s grace. Natalia , with great support and help from her husband, ministers at women’s conferences, on television programs, at rehab centers, and in many other areas. Recently, God put on her heart to write a book called The Price to the Higher Mountain where Natalia shares testimonies and the price she had to pay to reach the next level of her life. In this book she also shares how, at the age of 19, she was devastated by the news from the doctor that she had an incurable disease. However, under very unusual circumstances and through God’s grace, she was miraculously healed. She believes this testimony will help many others to overcome storms in their lives.
One more – but not less important part of the lives of Natalia and her husband Edward – is a charity. In Ukraine, she attends rehabilitation centers, shelters for the elderly, and hospitals. She understands how difficult it is in Ukraine for those who are below the poverty line. Natalia tries to encourage such people. Along with a word of hope, she gives them the bare necessities – food, clothing, and household supplies. “Give your heart to the disadvantaged,” –is what her parents taught and lived out before Natalia and her siblings. This has become lifetime learning from God.
