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: Happy in God’s Will

Daniel Lang Prayer Letter:  Happy in God's Will“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be all the glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21)

It’s amazing to know that we serve a God Who takes such good care of us! We know that being in the center of the will of God is the most wonderful place that a Christian could ever be! As we continue traveling, we continue to see God work. I didn’t mention it in the last letter, but at the beginning of January, God provided us with a brand-new 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander to use on deputation! God’s been good!

This month we had the opportunity to present our burden to Nigeria in eight churches in three different states! Even with some bad, wintry weather, we were still able to get to every meeting. For the second half of the month, our meetings were within an hour of where we live, so I was able to help with laying a bathroom floor at our sending church. We also had the opportunity to go on bus visitation and soul winning in Muncie, the town where we live!

Erin is due with our first child, a baby boy, on May 18, 2019! Both of them are doing great! It has been a little interesting scheduling all of her appointments around our traveling, but God has always worked it out. We have felt extremely blessed by all of the gifts that have been given to us for Erin and the baby!

We love young people (I think I’m still one myself)! We’ve been able to speak to a couple of youth groups and Junior Churches on a few different occasions. We love getting to speak on the subject of missions, but we also love reminding them that the pleasures of this world only last for a short time, and only what’s done for Christ will last! This is something that every adult needs to remember as well.

Thank you for your continued support! Each month I pray at least once for every pastor and church that we’ve visited. I know that for us to reach the whole world, we need each other to be reaching the people in the place where God has placed us. We know that it takes folks like you to send folks like us!

In His service,

Daniel and Erin Lang
