Dan Hirschy

Dan Hirschy is our eldest retiree, as he celebrated his 101st birthday on April 21, 2019.  Son of pastor Norm Hirschy, Dan came to Evans City in 1927, graduated from Evans City High School in 1936 and went to Bryan College. He and Eleanor were married in 1941. They served with Baptist Mid Missions for seven terms in Chad (central Africa).  With much unrest in Chad, they were arrested and sent home with two other couples.  Fourteen African pastors were executed for not being willing to renounce their faith.

Dan and Eleanor went to Waterville, Maine, to start a church.  They ministered there for 10 years, retired, but continued a nursing home ministry and encouraged their local church to be more involved in missions.  Eleanor died some time ago, but Dan continues to pray for others, missionaries, and especially his supporting churches.
