Nathan Spends Birthday in Texas

Wishing Kenneth Nathaniel Bates (aka Nathan Bates or "Kenny") a very happy 24th birthday!

Nathan recently spent six months living in Mississippi doing flight training, but he is back in Tennessee now, still doing flight training.

Rather than using his special day to focus on himself, Nathan is en route to Texas to help hurricane victims. He has emergency medical training and has previously worked as a volunteer fire fighter and as an EMT.

  4. That is wonderful! He has such a big heart! He has had emergency training which answers the questions of those wondering if he was qualified to work on kid's teeth.

  5. I think Nathan and Jana Duggar would make a great couple

    1. Jana is older than Nathan, and she seems more like the type to marry someone older than herself. This is not a critical comment in any way, I don't think it maters one way or the other, I think it just depends on preference.

  8. Good for Nathan for doing this. The situation in Texas is an unimaginable tragedy. I hope qualified volunteers from all over the US are heading that way now.
    May all those effected by this disaster find shelter.

  23. Belated Happy Birthday Nathan. It's not surprising you've gone to help in Texas. Your kindness is very obvious. Your parents have done a wonderful job raising their children, and shows in the way you live your life. You are also a Godly young man, and I'm sure God has the perfect young woman for you. One who is as caring, loves the Lord, and will love you dearly. Blessings to you!
