Bill Horan Retires, Gordon Robertson Voted President of OBI

Field Report by Operation Blessing

A message from Gordon Robertson:

Thank you for your dedicated support of Operation Blessing International. I deeply appreciate your compassion that reaches out to people in desperate need throughout the world.

Because you are such a good friend of this ministry, I want you to know that Bill Horan is retiring as OBI’s president. Bill has diligently served in this capacity since 2002, and we sincerely thank him for his years of faithful service. I thought you might like to see his letter of retirement. Please join me in praying that God will abundantly bless Bill as he begins this new chapter in his life.

I have had the privilege of working with Operation Blessing International over the years, and have served on the Board of Directors for OBI since 2002. I can say with great excitement that I look forward to working with you, in an even greater way in the future, as the Board of Directors has appointed me to be OBI’s new president.

When my father, Pat Robertson, founded Operation Blessing in 1978, he was inspired by the words of Isaiah 58:10-11: If you offer your food to the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted, then your light shall rise in the darkness. … The Lord will guide you continually.

Forty years later, Operation Blessing has grown into a global humanitarian organization renowned for its integrity, creativity, and efficiency. It’s amazing to see how generous partners like you have helped millions of people worldwide.

With your ongoing prayers and support, Operation Blessing will continue to be a strategic force in compassionate relief—feeding the hungry, rescuing disaster victims, and helping the needy in America and over 100 other countries. We also plan to expand our medical outreaches in places like Africa, where millions of people living in poverty have no health care, doctors, or surgeons.

The need is great—yet as we trust the Lord, He will fulfill His promise to guide us continually.

Thank you for your faithful support, and may God bless you.

Sincerely in Christ,

Gordon P. Robertson
