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, 2006, 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. Between our graduation and starting deputation (about 18 months), we served at Temple Baptist Church in Muncie, Indiana. We taught a teen Sunday school class, lead our Junior Church, drove our church bus, and were involved in our church’s music ministry. My wife helped in each of these and also played 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 about seeking to please our Savior in Nigeria.

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.

My name is Daniel Lang. My wife, Erin, my children, Ezekiel and Gianna, and I are working with missionary, Mark Holmes, and his family in Nigeria. We started deputation in January of 2019, and arrived on the field on October 22, 2021. 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 in Nigeria.

Daniel and Erin Lang Prayer Letter: Another Opportunity!

Daniel and Erin Lang Prayer Letter: Another Opportunity!Happy New Year! Over the Christmas break, we were able to spend a lot of time together as a family! We spent a few days between Christmas and New Year’s at a nice hotel in town, where we were able to relax with some of the other missionary families we get the opportunity to serve alongside. We are also thankful for the technology that helps us to be able to see those we love across the ocean, especially during the holidays. Thank you to those who sent cards, financial gifts, and messages; we felt very loved and appreciated!

As the new year is now underway, we are once again busy with the opportunities that God is putting in front of us. Erin is making very good progress in learning sign language! Very soon, she will try her hand at signing during the congregational singing. She is also continuing to teach piano to two of our faithful young ladies in the church. I am teaching once again in our Bible institute. Recently, while making follow-up visits on some of our church guests, I had the opportunity to lead a man and his wife to the Lord! Please pray, as I am working with four of our young seminary/church staff men (recently graduated from our seminary). I am trying to help them as they navigate this next phase of their lives and continue to prepare for whatever God has for them.

A new opportunity has presented itself. In short, two of the other missionary families, Pastor Adewale (one of our national pastors), and I will be conducting Missions Camps, specifically targeting the Nigerian youth. We are praying that through the teaching and preaching on the subject of the Great Commission, God will work on the hearts of the young people, and they will surrender to whatever it is that God has for each of them. These camps will be held in February, March, and June of this year in three different parts of Nigeria (West, Mid-North, and Southeast), and each of them will be hosted by a pastor and his local church. They will be three-day camps, with the campers staying on site each night. With the feeding, lodging, transportation, and other expenses, we believe each camp will cost about $700. We are asking that you would consider praying for and giving financially to help with this opportunity. If you are willing to pray, give, or do both, please reach out to me so that I can give you specific dates and update you with the results of your investment.

We are greatly looking forward to what God will do in 2023! Thank you for all that you are doing in the place to which God has called you. We know that it takes folks like you to send folks like us!

In His service,

Daniel, Erin, Ezekiel, and Gianna Lang
