A Christian online broadcast provider is streaming live Pentecost services from Jerusalem this weekend in an effort to help connect believers around the globe to the Holy Land. The web feed from a Christian prayer tent on the Mount of Olives is accessible free of charge on www.ipraytv.com. "Naturally it would be ideal if we could bring each and every believer to experience the Holy Land in person, but at least we now have the technology to bring them closer," said Mike Peros, Founder and CEO of IPrayTV. More than 30,000 people across the globe have viewed the live webcasts of a variety of Holy Land sites on the online broadcast provider since its inception last year during the Feast of the Tabernacles. The site, which rose to prominence after its live streaming of Christmas in Bethlehem, has attracted Christians of various denominations, although the majority of its viewers are evangelical Christians. The broadcaster offers live webcasts of nine Holy Land sites, including the Mount of Olives. Celebrated 50 days after Easter, Pentecost marks the decent of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles according to Christian tradition, and is regarded as the birth of the Church.
