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, a Missions Conference, I felt God calling me to go to the mission field. After I graduated high school, I went to Hyles-Anderson College, where I met my wife Erin. We both graduated in May 2017. We were married August 26, 2017. From our graduation until we started deputation, we served at our sending church, Temple Baptist Church in Muncie, Indiana.

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 assurance of my salvation. While attending Bible college, the Lord allowed me to meet and date my husband Daniel. He 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 needful 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.

In 2018, we were appointed to serve with Fundamental Baptist Missions International, the word and in January 2019, we started a 32-month deputation. After visiting 175 churches to raise financial support, we arrived on the field in October 2021. We are serving with veteran missionary, Mark Holmes, and his family. I would like to give a summary of what God has done and is doing through us. Any company in which you invest will usually send an annual report of how your contributions are faring; they tend to be very detailed, full of numbers, and quite boring. On the contrary, I hope that you will see our details as a depiction of our efforts to be accountable, the numbers as representations of souls and churches, and the report as an encouraging description of the return on your investments in our ministry.

Serving at Truth Baptist Church, Abuja, Nigeria

– My wife has started and coordinates a nursery during the Sunday morning services. She also teaches a teen girls’ Sunday school class and plays the piano for the congregational singing. She is learning sign language to be able to help in our deaf ministry.

– I fill in as a substitute Sunday school teacher and preach periodically during the services. We are involved in the regularly scheduled soul-winning and visitation times.

– I have helped to coordinate a discipleship program where we disciple converts and laymen and train those who are wanting to disciple others.

– I will oftentimes go and see first-time visitors in their homes. During this visit, I normally can give a clear presentation of the Gospel and teach on eternal security, baptism, etc. Home visits are very important here and a good time to gather the family and preach the Gospel.

– I’ve taught 7 six-week courses at our Bible institute, which it is held every Saturday.

– I’ve had the opportunity to preach and give the Gospel in schools, police stations, village meetings, etc. We’ve seen about 75 people saved in these unique venues.

– We’ve been able to help coordinate some big days at our church (Police Sunday, Academy Sunday, Friend Day, etc.). In August 2023, we had Friend Day at the church. We had a record of 520 people, with over 120 visitors!

– In our own personal soul-winning efforts, we’ve seen about 45 people get saved.

Bible Institutes

– I’ve traveled to 7 different independent Baptist churches in seven different states and have had the opportunity to help each of them start a Bible institute at their church. Five of the 7 are graduates of our Bible seminary. We believe that God will use these institutes to train men who will pastor their own churches soon. We not only help the church start the institute, we also will continue to provide the pastor with advice, encouragement, materials, and financial help as he leads the institute.

– In the 7 new institutes, there are currently about 75 students enrolled.

– During these travels, I’ve baptized about 35 people, and we’ve seen at least 125 souls saved through soul winning, night showing of the Jesus film, and special church services.

These are some of the things that God is doing through us. There is so much more to be done! We hope that you will consider being a part of what God is doing here in Nigeria, West Africa.

Daniel and Erin Lang Prayer Letter: Watching God Work!

Daniel and Erin Lang Prayer Letter: Watching God Work!Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support for our family! We are truly grateful for the kindness that so many of you have shown to us in so many ways. What a privilege it is to partner with different people from different places for the same purpose of pleasing our Father!

On January 20, we arrived back to Abuja, Nigeria. We are grateful for traveling mercies along the way. At the airport when trying to leave the U.S., we had a problem with one of our passports, and we were told that we could not fly that day. Thankfully, we were able to speak with the right people, get the problem fixed, and still make our flights. God is good!

While in the States, we were able to visit some of our supporting churches and meet some new ones. We also had the opportunity to preach the Gospel one on one multiple times, preach in a high school chapel, and speak in multiple children’s classes. We were grateful to spend much time with family and friends, whom we miss dearly while we are away.

In 2023, God worked mightily in Nigeria! We had a part in organizing three Youth Camps around the country, focusing on preaching and teaching about missions. We traveled to two different states and helped start two more Bible institutes. I taught four courses at our Bible institute. We helped organize three big days at the church and had over 500 in attendance for two of them. Erin was able to speak at a Ladies’ Conference, and we saw many people saved, baptized, and begin discipleship!

We are thanking God that $14,500 has come in toward building the three church buildings for our graduates! Thank you for your continued prayers in this area. We are excited to see what God will do in 2024! Very soon, I will be detailing some of the opportunities that God has given us for this year.

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

In His service,

Daniel, Erin, Zeke, and Gianna Lang
