A church is planning to use drone technology to drop Bibles on ISIS, according to The Washington Post.

Senior Pastor Joakim Lundqvist of Livets Ord, which in English means "Word of Life," announced the church's plan on his Instagram page: 


"We start our project in a few weeks and hope to drop thousands of Bibles," the church's mission director, Christian Akerhielm, said.

Akerhielm said that the church also distributes aid at refugee camps, and is not connected to any military action against the Islamic State (IS).

"The project has been in the media portrayed as an 'attack on IS' or with the terror group as its main target. This is not true. The mission's project is closer to traditional smuggling of Bibles, and it is not connected to any military or aggressive action in any way," Akerhielm said.

The Bibles are about the size of a pillbox and feature a digital display, according to CNet.com

The church demonstrated the drones for the church's congregation in July, posting a photo to Instagram:

The Local reported that the church hopes to pass the Christian Gospel to people in the Middle East.

"Our ambition is to pass on the hope and love of the Christian gospel to a population living in closed areas where they are being denied human rights," according to the church's website.

The Local said that the church also runs an evangelical school for children.
