Sunday, January 21st, 2024

It is with heavy hearts and tearful eyes that we share the passing of our beloved co-founder and executive director, Darrell Hinson. After a brief illness, he has found eternal rest in the arms of Jesus. Though our hearts are shattered, we also come together to celebrate the remarkable life of a man who touched countless souls.


As a devoted husband, loving father, inspiring mentor, and cherished friend, Darrell's impact reached far beyond borders. His influence extended not only across the United States but also left an indelible mark in Nicaragua that will continue on. Through his unwavering dedication, he touched the lives of thousands, leaving behind a legacy of love, compassion, and kindness.


"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." These words from 2 Timothy 4:7-8 perfectly encapsulate Darrell's journey. His life was a testament to resilience, commitment, and faithfulness. As we mourn his departure, we find solace in the belief that he has earned the crown of righteousness promised by the Lord.


Let us come together as a community to honor and remember Darrell, drawing strength from the love he poured into the world.


May his soul rest in peace, and may his memory continue to inspire us all.


To provide opportunities for partners in the U.S. to provide resources in where every child is nourished, every soul is uplifted, and families have a safe and dignified place to call home. Together, we create a community of hope, resilience, and faith in Jesus Christ.

"You can’t photo or explain it and make folks back home realize what’s taking place there. You have to see it, smell it and experience it first hand..

Looking forward to being back with you all!"

Becky H.

"There are almost no words to explain it. Such precious, grateful and encouraging people there. It’s impossible to leave that area without being blessed."

Kisha S.

"Words can't express the impact this place leaves. To see what The Pearl Foundation is doing is a beautiful work of the hands and feet of Jesus."
