Memorial tribute for Miss Dorothy Dagenhart

The Women’s Ministries of New Amity ARP would like to direct to this memorial tribute for Miss Dorothy Dagenhart to our  fellow ARP churches in First Presbytery or elsewhere.

Miss Dorothy Dagenhart
A Proverbs 31 Missionary – Nurse

Honors like the Award of Service from the Pakistani President Ghulam Ishaq Khan and the Honorary Doctor’s Degree from Erskine College proclaim and express the admiration that was due to Miss Dorothy Dagenhart.

A Christian Woman guided by the vision and values of God through prayer. Her life was a living sermon expressing faith in God with a heart of love and loyalty to his church. She stretched out her hands to the stranger, the poor, to the needy at home and abroad.

Dorothy received her nursing training at H. F. Long Hospital School of Nursing, in Statesville, Children’s Hospital, in Washington, DC, and the Mercy Hospital in Charlotte. Her working knowledge in both obstetrics and general anesthesia, aided and assisted her with the delivery of over 5000 children at the Nancy Fulwood Hospital in Sahiwal, Pakistan during her appointed missionary-nurse career.

We thank God for Dorothy Dagenhart’s years of service in Pakistan; helping with her missionary work with Dr. and Mrs. B. L. Hamilton. Promoting foreign missions with a dedicated commitment for 41 years, all the while walking with Christ. Shared with her was the love and support of family, friends, and other church families.

Her faith in Jesus Christ make it possible for her to have the assurance that at death; her soul was at rest with Jesus. She lived and died a child of God, secure in our Saviour. This was the faith of Dorothy Dagenhart.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His Love … Psalm 103:1
