Emmanuel Ngongo and his wife Marlphonsia Lunama have three daughters-Theresia (3 1/2), Evelyn (1 1/2), and Marjorie (newborn). The Ngongos have lived in McLean County almost three years and are originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
Emmanuel works at Marriott Hotel in Normal as a manager. Marlphonsia works at Heartland College as a janitor. Theresia is a playful gal who enjoys reading and helping to care for her sisters. She also helps her mother do some housework. Evelyn is always on the move and has been known to enjoy eating sprinkles off cookies.
The family attends the Mennonite Church in Normal and is so thankful for their Church family. Emmanuel and Marlphonsia are very excited to enjoy home ownership, and to establish roots in the community.
