Pearl Foundation Nicaragua.png
Pearl Foundation Nicaragua


The Pearl Foundation was founded in 2007 by Darrell and Linda Hinson after making numerous short term mission trips to Nicaragua beginning in 2000.  

They fell in love with the people and knew that one day they wanted to live in Nicaragua and minister to the needs of the people.  

In September 2011 their desire became reality. They were sent out with the blessings from their church, Church at the Mill in Spartanburg, SC.  


The mission of The Pearl Foundation is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and show the  love of our Lord to the people of Nicaragua through Feeding Programs, Back Yard Bible  Clubs for the children, Discipleship classes, Sports Ministry, Prison Ministry, Feeding

Program at the local dump and Nursing Home Ministry.  


Their goal is to build long term relationships with the children and adults in our ministry.  


In November 2016 they purchased property in the heart of Pantanal Barrio where the Children's Feeding Program, 2 Back Yard Bible Clubs, 3 Discipleship classes and 1 youth  group are located.  


They broke ground on the Community Building in February 2017 and moved all of activities into the building on June 18th, 2017. The Lord truly blessed them with Ministry Partners  who came alongside them to provide the funds for this wonderful building. This building is  used 7 days per week for God’s Glory. Two years after the ministry building was completed  they were able to purchase a lot across the street and build a large Rancho. This is a covered  space with chain link fencing all around. This has proven to be a great space for the  overflow of the Feeding Program, Back Yard Bibles clubs and a place for the children to  hang out.  


As of December 2021 Addys, Fatima and Everthys hosts 4 Back Yard Bible Clubs which includes 360 children each week. The Feeding Program serves 300+ meals 5 days a week for  the children. Addys and Felix have a Youth Group with 37 teens that meet weekly on Saturday morning. Jesse and Yohana have a Feeding Program that serves 140 meals 2 times  each week at the city dump. They have an hour long time of studying the Bible, singing and  prayer. They visit Posintepe Barrio all day each Thursday for house to house visits, home  Bible studies and a gathering of adults and children in a central area at the end of the day.  This includes 40 adults and around 100 children. Jesse and Yohana have a ministry in the  San Diego Barrio each Saturday afternoon with 20 adults and 25 children with a time of  Bible Study and prayer. Jesse also has 2 weekly Bible Studies in his home.
