God put the need for a free medical clinic for uninsured area residents in the heart of a local Naples resident, Mike Williams. Then in February of 2017, Linda Ricks approached Pastor Mike Sturgell after a morning worship service about the same burden she felt for the community. When Pastor Mike was also made pastor of the Tabler Gospel Tabernacle in October of 2017, the Spirit of God reminded him of these two visits when he was praying at the altar about God’s direction for the Tabler campus. The Pastor prayed for the Lord to have Mike Williams call him if this was a ministry that was supposed to take place at this facility. Mike Williams called him within two weeks and gave him Bill Sisson’s number, nearly 1 year after the original phone call. The first meeting was held on Sunday, January 21st and two months later the start date was set for August of 2018.
