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: Teaching Institute!

Daniel and Erin Lang Prayer Letter: Teaching Institute!God is very good to His children! We experience it daily. We’ve been blessed recently as members of our church have given testimony of how God has provided for them. There are many difficult situations that people here face every day, yet our Father knows each and every one of them. Wherever you are in the world and however good or bad your situation may seem, God is aware!

March 28-30, we helped run the second “Who Will Go?” Youth Camp in Ibadan. We had 145 people present from 19 different churches. Based on the decision cards, about 50 people made known their decision to do or change something in their lives that would enable them to serve God better. We are thankful for your prayers for these Youth Camps! God is working, and we’ve had multiple young people let us know that they are planning to come to Bible college next semester! We are praying that many ministering servants of God would be the fruit of our efforts! Please pray for the third and final camp happening July 11-13.

One of my favorite ministering opportunities is teaching at our Bible institute, which is held every Saturday. It is such a privilege to teach men and women who give hours of their busy week to the pursuit of God’s Word. Some are mothers, some are future pastors, and some are young people who value the things of God. They are all gathered to try and get the necessary tools to be able to serve God to the best of their ability! I just finished teaching a “Church Education” course and had 13 students.

On the second Sunday of May, Truth Baptist Church enjoyed its 18th anniversary. There were 579 people who came, with over 100 being first-time visitors! We used the entire month of May to focus on inviting people to church to hear the Gospel. Our members responded well, and many people attended church and heard clearly, some for the first time, that the finished work of Jesus is the only thing that can save a person.

Every Sunday of the year, immediately after the morning service, we have a visitors’ meeting. During the meeting, the visitor can ask one of our staff or men questions about the church, salvation, baptism, etc. Many people are saved during these meetings! In July, we will host a Family Day for our deaf ministry. Please pray that many will hear and respond to the Gospel that day!

In the past, it has been very time-consuming to obtain a visa to visit Nigeria. In April, four of Bro. Holmes’ guests took advantage of a new visa-on-arrival. All that is needed from visitors is their flight itinerary, passport data page, address, signature, and a photo for a 30-day visa that costs $260. This should make coming to Nigeria much easier! If you are interested in visiting us or have questions, please let me know!

Thank you for your prayers! We know that it takes folks like you to send folks like us!

In His service,

Daniel, Erin, Zeke, and Gianna Lang
