Daniel’s Testimony

By God’s grace, I had the amazing opportunity to grow up in a godly Christian home. Very early on, I was taught the value of hard work, how to be respectful, and much more. I was raised in a pastor’s home and was shown, by example, that living for Jesus Christ is truly the most amazing way to live life. I believe that the two people who have had the greatest impact on my life are my parents. On February 3, 2007, at a revival meeting, as the preacher preached on the terrors of Hell, I realized that this pastor’s kid was on his way to Hell. I met my Junior Church teacher at the altar and asked Jesus to forgive me of my sins and take me to Heaven when I died. The next year at a Youth Conference, I was called to preach. A little while after that at a Missions Conference, I felt God calling me to go to the mission field.

After I graduated from high school, I went to Hyles-Anderson College, where I met my wife Erin. We both graduated in May of 2017. We were married on August 26, 2017. Since our graduation, I have been serving at Temple Baptist Church in Muncie, Indiana. My wife joined me here after we were married. I teach a teen Sunday school class, lead our Junior Church, drive our church bus, and am involved in our church’s music ministry. My wife helps in each of these and also plays the piano for the congregational singing.

I have always felt that God wanted us to serve somewhere on the continent of Africa. I have visited missionaries in Ghana and Rwanda. We believe that God has opened the door for us to serve in Nigeria, West Africa, with Missionary Mark Holmes. We are very excited to start deputation and get to the field.

Erin’s Testimony

I had the privilege to grow up in an amazing Christian home. Our family served faithfully in the church and its ministries. Even though I was raised in a godly environment, I was not saved until I was a teenager; the Lord graciously allowed me to hear message after message. Then in 2011 at a Youth Conference, I finally received the assurance of my salvation. While attending Bible college, the Lord allowed me to meet and marry my husband Daniel.

Daniel shared his burden for missions with me, which has become our focus. The Lord has allowed both my husband and me to visit missionaries in Africa, and we feel that He is leading us to this needy field. I am truly excited to see what the Lord has in store for us as we endeavor to reach the lost souls of Nigeria.

Our Ministry

We plan to work with Missionary Mark Holmes and his family in Nigeria. During our first few years, we will be learning the culture and possibly a language. We will be actively involved in many facets of Bro. Holmes’ ministry. Along with working in the local church, we will be helping at the Bible college, preaching the Gospel in the public schools, and working with nationals from the Bible college in church plants.

We believe that God wants us to plant churches. Working with Bro. Holmes, we will be learning from someone who is an established church planter. We look forward to being used of God on deputation and eventually in Nigeria.

Daniel Lang Prayer Letter: Different Opportunities!

Daniel Lang Prayer Letter: Different Opportunities!“And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.”
(I Timothy 1:14)

In this verse, Paul is thanking God for using him. He recounts how, before he got saved, he was the worst of sinners. After he got saved, despite Paul’s sin, God used him in an incredible way! I’m grateful that, despite what I once was, God will use me!

At the beginning of May, we started traveling again. Due to the virus, we were at home in Muncie for about seven weeks. We greatly enjoyed getting to spend time together as a family and getting to help with different projects at the church. Among other things, we were able to help set up the livestream and paint our church’s auditorium. When your brother is your pastor, there is always something to do at the church!

While at home in Muncie, I had the opportunity to show a young man how he could be saved! I met Chris as he took shelter under an overhang at our church in the pouring rain. After talking with him for quite a while, he understood that he was a sinner and that he needed a Saviour! Though there have been some doors of opportunity closed in the last couple of months, I believe that God is opening others; we just need to go through them!

In May, God gave us great meetings with churches in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and Indiana. As always, we were blown away by the generosity of God’s people. Though we can’t wait to get to Nigeria, we are excited about being in God’s will right here in the USA!

We know that it takes folks like you to send folks like us!

In His service,

Daniel, Erin, and Ezekiel
