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: Living the Dream!

Daniel and Erin Lang Prayer Letter: Living the Dream!I was reminded recently during some sermon preparation of some of the changes that take place in a person after they get saved. A new mind, new understanding, new work, and new victory are some of those changes. I hope that each of us will take these responsibilities, pair them with the promises of God, and strive to live a life that pleases our heavenly Father!

Our family has been staying very busy for these last few weeks! On the first Sunday of May, I traveled out to a village church to be a part of their first service in their new building. To get there, we crossed a few rivers and drove around a mountain, and I had the opportunity to meet the chief of the village. These are things that I’ve dreamed about doing for years. God is good! Among her other responsibilities, my wife has started to help two young ladies begin to play the piano.

I mentioned in our last letter that we are beginning to learn the Hausa language. It is going well, but we would like to ask you to pray that God would give us understanding and wisdom in this area.

One of the seminary students gathered some young men who live near the church and asked me to preach the Gospel to them. I did so, and I believe that a few of them understood the Gospel and trusted Christ as the only way to Heaven! One of them came to church on Sunday and is interested in starting discipleship.

I was able to travel to Ogbomosho, Oyo State, and help the Berean Independent Baptist Church start a Bible institute. This church was started over 25 years ago. We’re excited that they are willing to take this next step in training and discipling people! I’ve also started to teach a Foundations of My Faith discipleship class during the Sunday school hour at church.

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

In His service,

Daniel, Erin, Ezekiel, and Gianna
