IF SNOPES DOESN'T KNOW THIS YET; AT LEAST YOU DO

Snopes knows stuff.  One can type in a question and Snopes knows answers. 

So, Snopes, is it true Francis Chan is scheduled to speak at the Tulsa Workshop next year? 

While Snopes does the necessary research, allow me to field that question.

The correct answer is Yes; Francis Chan is scheduled to speak twice at the Tulsa Workshop in March 2013.  He is to do the Thursday evening keynote and the 11:00 a.m. keynote on Friday.

And how did that come about?

I invited him.

But there is more.

I invited him in 2011for the '13 workshop.  A response said Mr. Chan was all booked throughout '11 and '12.  I responded that my invitation was for the year 2013.  A second response came back, He's busy then, too. 

But then I learned that my friend, Wes Woodell, knew Francis personally.  Wes was able to speak with him personally about the workshop and the next thing I knew, we had Mr. Chan on the program.

True; Snopes may not know this, yet.  But you do!  I think you will want to be here!

Since everybody reads Terry's post and nobody reads mine, I will post here in the comment sections (Thanks Terry1)

I went with Wes to the Serloin District of SF with Wes. This was close to the beginning of the ministry plant there being led by Francis Chan. They are there to minister to the poor and disenfranchised that live in the many high rise apartment buildings. I went on a tour of one of the buildings to invite the occupants to come and eat at an inner city mission. Upon returning to the mission to eat I sat at a table among the folks that had gathered and two young ladies joined us. Now I was sitting among the homeless,that is those that were being ministered to. One of the young ladies said, "How are you doing sir? Have you had a good day?" (She thought I was one of the high rise occupants!) She made me feel glad that I was there. Although she was about 12 years old she was a great conversationalist. The wife of Francis and a daughter led the group in worship. Francis spoke to the group and it turned out the 12 year old who led the conversation at my table was their daughter also.

You don't want to miss this man of God in Tulsa.
