As we reflect on the premiere week of The Elena & Natalia Show, we would like to encourage you, the one who has big dreams, those God-sized dreams in your heart that you know only God can bring to life: If God said it, He will do it. If He promised it, He will fulfill it! As it says in Matthew 19:26, "Jesus looked at them and said, 'With man this is impossible, but with God ALL things are possible.’” What are the impossible dreams that you are fighting for today? If it matters to you, know that it matters to God too! Take all of your dreams and surrender them all at the feet of Jesus. He knows, He sees, and He cares, and He wants to be the provider of all of the right dreams. He has an Ephesians 3:20 life prepared for each of you, in which He will do exceedingly abundantly above all that you can ask, dream, or imagine if you simply go to Him with all of your requests.
The Elena & Natalia Show is truly a God-story of how everything came together. From how He brought together the right people to how His eye was upon all of our decisions from the very beginning working all things out for our good. How He keeps His Word, His promises, and how not one will ever return void. As we wrote our vision down and made it clear (Habakkuk 2:2), we were able to articulate a specific mission which is to, “Engage in heartfelt, transparent conversations about Jesus, life, and love centered on the beauty and truth of God's Word.” Our desire is to point all who come across the show straight to Jesus. We want to honor and bring glory to His name through all that we do, and are very grateful for the opportunity to do that through the show.
During our premiere episode, we share our hearts, three words that we would use to best describe each other, a home video of one of our testimonies, our media career journey, and what we really hope to accomplish through The Elena & Natalia Show. There is so much bad news and fake news being reported on, that we look forward to weekly sharing the Good News, the Gospel, with you instead.
All of the glory goes to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, our Best Friend, who without Him none of this would have been possible. We are thankful for Him, His hand, our Jehovah Jireh, in bringing about the right people at just the right time to be a part of our team. We would like to thank:
Our parents, VAHE & HILDA MARANIAN, who have been there for us from the start, for their support, encouragement, and prayers. As the founders of International Christian Family Network, Inc., which started in 2008, we also have opportunity to broadcast our program on ICFN as well.
Our amazing little sister, CAROLINA MARANIAN for being the best on-set photographer and most helpful production assistant.
Pastor REZA SAFA of Nejat TV and Reza Safa Ministries for his partnership in generously giving us the opportunity to utilize his state-of-the-art set. The high quality production is next level and up to par with the excellence that our hearts truly desire. The preparation of the set was the last step during pre-production, and after almost a month of fasting, our very specific prayer was answered. Each time we record, we are in awe of how the Lord provided for us at just the right timing!
JAVIER MORENO of Nejat TV for serving as our on-set director.
SILVIA GEZALYAN for providing fabulous hair styling and ROSE KARAPETIAN for doing glamorous makeup looks for our recordings and helping us feel camera-ready! Beauty Secrets by Silvia salon is located at 1616 Victory Blvd, Glendale, CA 91201.
DAVE HENDRA & DAVE PILCHER of EIKON for graciously allowing us to use their song, ‘HUMAN,’ as the theme song for our show. When we first heard the catchy beat, we were really inspired, but it was the lyrics, ‘Savior, You’re all I need,’ that confirmed to us that that was the song we wanted to use to represent our show. If there’s one song that should be stuck in our heads all day, it’s ‘Human’, because we believe it’s a prayer in and of itself.
