.                                  Cynthia’s funeral, Norval was so moved by Pastor Hosea’s words that it convinced him to receive Christ as his Savior
.                                  and at the age of 89, on June 29th 2014 was baptized by Pastor Hosea Bilyeu at Ridgecrest Baptist Church.  Norval’s
