Gloire Emmanuel Ndongala
Gloire Emmanuel Ndongala was born in the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kinshasa. When he was a child, the tyrant Mobutu went after his father, putting the whole family in danger. By the grace of God, they all escaped and went to America, on an Asylum status.
He has 4 siblings starting with the oldest, a sister named Lona, his older brother Sandy, younger sister Marthe and finally his youngest brother AJ. His mom, Beatrice Makanzu, was a pillar in his life. Gloire truly believes that his mom’s prayers are the reason why he is alive today.

My Hispanic Family
After coming to America at the age of 15, his father abandoned his family and Gloire was taken in by a Hispanic family in Colorado, the Luceros.
Although Gloire was a good athlete, his encounter with God at a retreat at the age of 16 compelled him to give up his dreams to play sports professionally.
Prior to being saved, he was Mr. Popular on the outside, but dead on the inside. After getting saved, he started to understand why he was alive on this earth, and that was, as he would put it “to share the good news of Jesus Christ.”
