Patrick Klein, director of Vision Beyond Borders, updated Sheridan County residents on what his ministry is doing during a meet-and-greet Friday night at Sheridan's Holiday Inn.

Klein started the ministry in 1994 and for a time had offices in Sheridan before moving to Montana. Vision Beyond Borders now has offices in Billings and Casper. Klein talked about the ministry in an interview with Sheridan Media before the meet-and-greet started.

He said the ministry has also provided vegetable seeds for people and sent supplies into Cuba. He said Friday's event also was to talk about the needs of people around the world, especially refuges. He said the people of Syria and northern Iraq lost everything to ISIS.

Klein said as a Christian, he wanted to help the people. He said between northern Iraq and Jordan, the ministry has sent in eight 40-foot containers full of clothes, medical supplies, school supplies, food and whatever other items the people need.

He said the ministry also helped after the earthquake in Nepal last year, raising over $100,000 and bringing in many supplies, tarps, food and other necessities to help the people there rebuild.

Klein said he and others with Visions talk in churches and receive donations to help provide for the ministry. He said people all over the country have been sending supplies to the ministry, which then sends them where they're needed.
