SANTA TECLA, El Salvador -- Dressed in her brown habit, Sister Elsy Gaytan walks through a field among rows of cabbages, pointing to the crisp green crop sprouting from the earth. "The motto of our institution is God will provide, and indeed He is providing," she said. Sister Elsy is the coordinator of Home of Divine Providence, an orphanage that has started a sustainable agriculture project that will feed not only the 32 children who live there, but also allow the Carmelite Missionary Sisters of St. Therese, who oversee the home, to reach local consumers with organic products.
