The Women of Faith conference ministry is reaching out to Oklahoma women affected by the May tornadoes.

Several outreach efforts are scheduled around the “Believe God Can Do Anything” conference set for Aug. 2-3 at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Stefanie Aldrich, Women of Faith's Oklahoma City event representative, said the ministry will hold a Night of Hope worship service July 31 at LifeChurch.tv's south Oklahoma City campus.

The free event will feature Women of Faith core presenters and authors Sheila Walsh and Lisa Harper, plus several local pastors and musicians, Aldrich said.

Also, she said the ministry has distributed about 500 complimentary admission vouchers to churches in the affected areas around the state.

She said with the use of the vouchers, hundreds of women will be attending the Women of Faith conference free of charge.

Aldrich said the 2013 tour schedule for the ministry based in Plano, Texas, was planned more than a year ago, with Oklahoma City as the first stop.

She said several ministry team members visited some of the areas ravaged by tornadoes with representatives from Samaritan's Purse. Aldrich said they participated in cleanup efforts but knew there was more that could be done to help women reeling from the disaster.

“I do think it's a God thing. We were meant to be here that weekend,” Aldrich said of the August conference date.

“I talked to several women here (in Oklahoma), and they said, ‘This could not be a better time for you guys to come restore hope to the city and the state.'”

‘Why would we not?'
