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: Redemption Through Jesus!

Daniel Lang Prayer Letter:  Redemption Through Jesus!“In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” (Colossians 1:14)

We are so thankful for the redemption that we have through Jesus Christ! Sometimes I wonder how a lost person goes through life, trying to deal with all of the problems that arise. I’m so thankful to be able to lean on Jesus for every need and to get the opportunity to serve Him! It must be a miserable existence to go through life unsaved. We’re grateful for the opportunity to be able to point people to Jesus so that they can find hope!

We had the opportunity to present the work in seven different churches this month! We were in my home state of Michigan for most of the month, so we had the opportunity to spend some time with family and old friends. We were blessed with many opportunities to share the Gospel and pass out tracts. I’m so thankful for all of the opportunities to reach people, but I’m also burdened because I know that there are still many people around the world who have yet to hear. The Gospel is only good news if it gets there in time!

Getting to be a part of Vacation Bible School at my dad’s church was a great honor! Over 60 kids and teenagers heard the Gospel presented and had the opportunity to make life-changing decisions, and 14 young people made a profession of faith! This VBS was extra special to be a part of because I attended it while growing up.

Thank you to those who prayed about us getting our visas in time for our survey trip. We went down to near Atlanta to fill out paperwork. Thankfully, we have been given our visas and are looking forward to our survey trip to Nigeria in September! We ask that you pray for the people we will have the opportunity to minister to while we are there; pray that God would even now start softening hearts. Also, pray that God would continue to give us a greater burden for the people of Nigeria.

Thank you for all of your prayers and support! It is a privilege to be able to partner with other servants of God, so that we can all be able to fulfill the Great Commission! We know that it takes folks like you to send folks like us!

In His service,

The Daniel Lang Family
