A Snippet of History Regarding the Chaplain

“When George Washington assumed command of the Continental Army at Cambridge, Massachusetts, chaplains were already present for duty. Washington could count fifteen chaplains serving with the twenty-three regiments gathered around Boston. The Continental Congress gave the chaplains its official recognition on 29 July l775, when it voted pay for various officers and enlisted personnel in the Continental Army not previously covered in its resolution of l6 July.” Nearly a year later General George Washington issued the following General Order:”

July 9, 1776
The Hon. Continental Congress having been pleased to allow a Chaplain to each Regiment, with the pay of Thirty-three Dollars and one third pr month—The Colonels or commanding officers of each regiment are directed to procure Chaplains accordingly; persons of good Characters and exemplary lives—To see that all inferior officers and soldiers pay them a suitable respect and attend carefully upon religious exercises. The blessing and protection of Heaven are at all times necessary but especially so in times of public distress and danger—The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor to live and act as becomes a Christian soldier defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country. Signed, George Washington

Then the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."

—Luke 2:10–11

A Letter From The President

Dear Beloved CFMI Members,

It is with great heartbreak and sadness that we send this newsletter out. 

On Sunday morning, December 17th, our founder and spiritual guide unexpectedly went to be with our Heavenly Father.  Chaplain Donald Gibson, Papa, Pops, Chappy, or Dad (he wore many caps) was not only a mentor to many, but also a great friend, loving husband, and loving father.  His messages of love, hope, and faith will forever endure and his legacy of Chaplain Fellowship Ministries will continue, as it is God's Will.  His vision and focus in the First Responders family has helped and healed many who are grateful for their divine appointments with Chaplain Gibson.
 
A Memorial service has been set for this Friday, December 22nd, at 2 PM at Scanio-Harper Funeral home located in Temple, TX.

The address for the funeral home is:

Scanio-Harper Funeral Home
3110 Airport Road
Temple, TX 76504

 
Chaplain David Cody Franz will be officiating the service however anybody who would like to share a memory are welcome to speak.

Sincerely,

Richard T. Hess
President, Chaplain Fellowship Ministries
