G. T. Bustin, Founder and Administrator of , "The East and West Indies Mission" With Headquarters at Intercession City, Florida
Naomi D. Daugherty, (Nov 14, 1912-Feb 23, 1957) and Elmer Roy Allison (June 17,1903-March 12, 1962) were married in Haiti. Elmer left Miami on a boat being captained by GT Green Tolbert Bustin in Dec. 1945. "Naomi Daugherty left with the Bustin's to go to Haiti in December 1945. In January, 1946 Elmer Allison and Elinor Gorwood flew into Haiti to join the Bustin's work in Cap Hatian. Elmer Allison and Naomi Daugherty were married in Cap Haitian on April 11, 1946. Their first son, Elmer Wendell, was born in Cap Hatian on February 18, 1947."Not too much later, Mrs. Bustin died and is buried in Haiti. Since they had young children, it wasn't long until he remarried—possibly to the missionary nurse who had cared for his wife. . In later years he wrote a book in which he likened the friendship between him and Elmer as being like David and Jonathan. Elmer and Naomi were married in English by Lee Carroll and in French by Pastor Touisant. It is assumed this was because the Haitians were invited to the wedding. Naomi was not well so they came back to the States, to Fellowship Front in Sanford, in 1949. Mary Allison Carpenter was born there in 1949 and Stephen Allison in 1950.

Bustin, Gerald. son of G.T. Bustin. Born September 21, 1943. Facebook post on his birthday, 9/21/2015. Roana and I had a wonderful day traveling back down Memory lane going back to the early 50's when I lived in Intercession City for a few years. It was here that I experienced my first revival when I was 12. in the 6th grade, and God told me to get up and speak to my class. God moved on the hearts of the children and everyone in the class professed to get saved. Later, two of the boys and I formed an evangelism team and went down to the lower grades class room and shared our testimonies and all in those classes prayed to get saved. All this happened more than 60 years ago!

The word "Ropeholders" means much to the stutdents of ICBC; this is the name of the student missionary prayer band. The group meets each week in behalf of missions, both at home and abroad. Many of the Ropeholders have bidden the group farewell and are now actively engaged in the work of reaching those "On the Darker Side of the Road," while many others plan to be leaving soon. It is the belief of this group that 'holding the ropes" by mean of inercessory prayer is an important part of missionary work. We of the group intend to be "Ropeholder Missionaries" until we hear the command, "Go ye."
