Churches in attendance at the festival were encouraged to shout out their names at one point. I would say about twenty churches were represented from the Salt Lake area. Three area church bands performed, including my own church's band.
While we sang with the bands on the balmy late summer evening I was so grateful to have this freedom, and so heavy in my heart over the persecuted Christian around the world who would face execution for openly worship as we were doing. Someday in heaven we will sing with these modern day martyrs. For now I say with them:
"Come Quickly Lord!"
