In 1984 at the age of 21, Patrick Klein began missions when he traveled to Israel to share the Gospel. In 1987, he navigated to Southeast Asia with a group from Christ For the Nations Institute (CFNI). After carrying Bibles into China, he felt God calling him to serve in Asia by reaching people through the Word and strengthening the persecuted Church. Advancing in this direction, Pat founded Asian Vision in 1994 in Casper, WY. 

Today, it is known as Vision Beyond Borders.


Vision Beyond Borders began as a small ministry which specialized in taking Bibles into China and other parts of Asia.  As Pat brought Bibles into these countries, he felt a great urge to help the local peoples. The ministry has since grown to support orphaned children, widows, persecuted pastors, and rescue women and children from sex-slavery.

Since its foundation, Vision Beyond Borders has carried over 1 million Bibles and 15,000 hand-wind tape players containing the Gospel into closed countries. VBB has set up rescue and rehabilitation ministries for sex-trafficking victims in India & Nepal, including a safe house. With donors' support, we have also provided for over 800 children & nearly 200 native pastors in Gospel-resistant nations. An abundant amount of humanitarian aid and medical care have been administered to the poor and to persecuted refugees from Burma, Syria, and Iraq. Over 40 million vegetable seed packets have been distributed, providing self-sustaining resources for villages and orphanages. Thousands of Bible flannel graphs have also been delivered to reach children and adults with the Gospel.
