To The Family; Without a doubt, your loved one, Nate, will be missed more than anyone can imagine. However, memories are intended to help fill and heal the obvious gap, and we continue as best as we can–as Nathaniel would desire. Nate and I were born less than a year apart and approximately a block apart, on the same street. My father was Rufus Lissimore, and we resided at 306 West North Street, Valdosta, Georgia. Nate, of course was born at 215 West North Street. We attended Magnolia Street Elementary and other public schools. During those early grades, because our last name was Lissimore, we actuall sat at the same desk! In those days, each desk was designed to accommodate two students. Because we moved around quite a lot (more than 20 time), our paths took us in different directions and we ultimately lost ontact. My email address is provided, if anyone wishes to contact me. Otherwise, I offer the condolence of me and my family, in support of sharing this untimely event. You are in our prayers with the trust that you will ontinue to perservere and be Blessed!

I first met Nate at a Inner Healing and Deliverance Retreat where he was assigned to me as his leader, it was there that I learned how large his heart was and how much he loved the Lord Jesus Christ!
On another date Nate came to KJM and attended School of the Five Fold Ministry, where God blessed me by giving me a vision of Nate which I delivered to him. I saw Nate in his room in a rocking recliner, legs crossed, hand at his head while praying and I discribed his room to which Nate said it was exactly as I seen it. Then I seen a image of Jesus entering the door as he prayed. It was that day that Nate asked me to be his Mentor to which I gladly said yes.
From that time in 2013 I have enjoyed greatly his willingness to be molded and shaped in the Super Natural of our Church.
We have danced, laughted, cryed, rejoyced and growned together.
I love you my beloved Nate, you are a true Disciple which I am so privileged to have been your Mentor and Elder. But now you are with the true Mentor Jusus and in the presence of Our Father !!! Elder Bill
