My name is Loïc Mangeard, I'm 18 years old and I am from Paris, France. I am a student currently studying Business Management at Lycée Guy de Maupassant (University). I grew up in The Salvation Army with Salvationist parents who taught me about God. Now, I am a senior soldier and also the bandmaster of my corps, Paris les Lilas. I play Solo Cornet in the French Staff Band where my mother is the bandmaster. I love playing in the band because for me it's a great testimony to the Lord. I also enjoy singing, and I sing with G-thanks at my corps.

What do I expect from Congress? I hope to meet many young Salvationists and be able to talk to them about The Salvation Army in their countries. I want to feel the presence of God and grow stronger in him! And when I go back to my corps I want to say 'how great God is in The Salvation Army!'

I'm very excited to visit Prague this October!
