The author's unusual spiritual journey transformed him from a Royal Marine Commando, trained to kill or be killed, to the director of the healing ministries of Christ the King Spiritual Life Center, where he now teaches people to heal and be healed.

This long-awaited sequel to Hand to Hand: From Combat to Healing, Mumford's experience of healing in the trenches, offers vivid snapshots of God at work in the world. These true tales from the author's healing ministry and prayers gives the reader insight into the little-known world of modern miracles.

Inspiring to Christians and non-Christians alike, these accessible stories challenge us to explore the depths of our faith. They will encourage healers in their ministry of prayer and those who are ill to seek physical and spiritual healing for themselves.

Nigel's blog page:

Nigel W.D. Mumford is the founder of “By His Wounds, Inc” a Christian healing ministry based in Virginia Beach, Virginia. For a full biography and current information on By His Wounds please visit,

He is the former director of the Healing Ministry at Christ the King Spiritual Life Center in Greenwich, New York, with the Episcopal Diocese of Albany.

Fr. Nigel was born and educated in England.  He served for six and a half years in Her Majesty’s Royal Marine Commandos; his last two years as a Marine were spent as a drill instructor at the Commando Training School. In 1980, he came to America and set up a picture framing business in Connecticut. In 1995, he sold his business and has since dedicated his life to the ministry of healing.  His conviction to pray for healing came in 1989 when his sister, Julie Sheldon, a ballet dancer with the Royal Ballet in London, was healed by God through the late Canon Jim Glennon.  This was a very dramatic healing from Dystonia, a severe neurological condition that curled her up into a fetal position and left her very close to death. Being a witness to her healing has had a profound effect on Fr. Nigel’s life. 

In October 2009, Fr. Nigel was hospitalized with H1N1, pneumonia and secondary pneumonia, and was near death.  He was in a chemical induced coma for 19 days, after being put on a ventilator; he then was given a tracheotomy.   After six weeks in Intensive Care and three weeks at a rehabilitation facility, Fr. Nigel was sent home to continue his recovery. His pulmonologist told him: “You were as close to death without dying that I have ever seen.”  Fr. Nigel was the object of a massive prayer effort that spanned the globe;  he and his family give thanks and praise to all the intercessors who lifted him up in prayer, as he is alive and remains serving the Lord because of the efficacy of corporate prayer.  Thank you Jesus! Just over a year later, Fr. Nigel returned to traveling around the world, teaching and preaching the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.

Outside the ministry, Fr. Nigel enjoys sailing, boating, gardening, writing, public speaking, e-biking, playing the violin, bagpipes, and the clarinet. Fr. Nigel lives with his lovely wife, Lynn, and their adorable little dog in Virginia Beach, Va.
