CHRIST IS THE ANSWER INTERNATIONAL – CLARK SLOAN


Serving: Italy

Christ is the Answer International Ministries is made up of 13 teams in different parts of the world. Clark Slone and a group of eight elders are responsible for the Italian mission team, which is made up of around 100 full-time laborers. We live in a mobile camp, sharing the daily responsibilities of the workload.

The Christ is the Answer tent team has been in Italy for 30 years, continually moving from city to city, towns and villages, spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His salvation.

We hold nightly meetings under the big tent that has the capacity for 3,000 people. Small evangelistic teams are sent out each day to hold open-air meetings, with singing, testifying, preaching and street drama and also periodically going into hospitals, nursing homes, and prisons. There are also many other things to do in camp, from practical work to teaching school.

There is something for everybody. New ministries are also developed as additional brethren come into the work and bring their talents and abilities. We have a daily Bible study and a time for personal study and/or relaxation. Serving one another is truly a blessed life. Whatever abilities you have, we could put to good use. You are welcome to come visit, see the work for yourself, and participate.

MINISTRY TO EDUCATE & EQUIP – MELONI ADAMS


Serving: Bulgaria & Eastern Europe

Having served with MTEE for 13 years (since March 1995), Meloni is currently serving in Lovech, Bulgaria. Her areas of ministry include:

Oversight of a network of Bible schools in Bulgaria in conjunction with Vision International University and International School of Ministry 2006-2007 – twenty-two local church-based schools with 260 students; I oversee the administration and teach classes in Counseling, Missions, and Management and Administration
Children’s Ministry – for 9 years working together with Peggy Laney (Director of Children’s Ministry for MTEE) in the development of curricula and resource materials for Sunday school programs in Bulgaria
Social Ministry – working to establish a “Soup Kitchen/Feeding Program” for those in need in Lovech where participants will be fed both naturally and spiritually
Serving a network of local churches in administration, church planting, missions strategy, women’s ministry, and establishing prayer teams
The Bulgarian nation lived under Turkish oppression for 500 years before being freed (with help from the Russians) and then finding themselves under communism. They learned to survive with passive-aggressive behavior and unethical practices. This lifestyle is being challenged and changed in the church, and new models for work ethic, business, and family life are being raised up as young believers are uncovering and walking in the truths of God’s Word. In the last 12 years, we have seen hundreds of believers across Bulgaria in our training programs. Many of them are in full-time ministry today, and they are truly making a difference in their cities. However, Bulgaria needs revival, and there are many strongholds from the spirits that reigned during communism and from the religious traditions of the Orthodox Church that must be broken. The young people are crying out for something that is honest and real.
