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 Institute!

Daniel and Erin Lang Prayer Letter: Another Institute!God is so good to us! He redeemed us, and He uses us! What a privilege it is to call the God of Heaven, Father. Please continue to do your part in fulfilling the Great Commission while there is yet time.

In our last letter, I mentioned that I would have the opportunity to travel and start another Bible institute. Thank you, Bible Baptist Church in Reedsburg, Wisconsin, for your financial help with this endeavor. This time, we traveled by road (my first road trip in Nigeria) to Vandeikya, Benue State, to help Rockway Independent Baptist Church start an institute. We were able to teach and preach on subjects such as baptism, eternal security, etc. On Sunday, I had the opportunity to baptize 23 people, both young and old, in the river. On our way back, we were able to preach at and encourage a church pastored by one of the graduates from the seminary. The pastor took me to his family’s village, and about 200 people gathered and listened as I preached the Gospel to them through an interpreter. Please pray for the people enrolled in the institute, for those who were saved, and for the seeds that were planted.

I just finished teaching Old Testament Survey I at our institute here in Abuja. I love teaching laypeople, some who are training for full-time ministry, who are hungry to learn more about God and His Word!

One of our deacons is a police officer, and he invited me to come and preach at the chapel where he works. I was able to preach to about 20 police officers, most of them trusting in their works to save them. I preached on, “What Our Righteousness Can and Cannot Do.” I’m praying that the Holy Spirit would work on hearts.

Another one of the good men in our church invited us to come and help with the Bible Club that he hosts at his house. The whole family went, and Erin was able to teach the story of the Twelve Spies to about 20 children. We are grateful for the members of Truth Baptist Church who are doing their best to “punch holes in the darkness.”

Thank you for your continued prayers and financial support. We know that it takes folks like you to send folks like us!

In His service,

Daniel, Erin, Ezekiel, and Gianna
