Veteran is Set Free from a 25 Year Nightmare
There aren’t enough words to express my thankfulness to our Lord Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit and of course the prayers of the team of the Welcome Home Initiative. But also want to share a few more details of the rest of the inner healing and to be honest some of the struggles I had. The night of the inner healing breakthrough of my Desert Storm Basra Highway memory/trigger of school buses I was enjoying the freedom I felt and trying to go to sleep. Then my analytical mind kicked in and something didn’t make sense about Jesus driving the bus. The enemy even tried to interject, “that’s right Jesus drove them into destruction”! I immediately took that thought captive because I knew that was not of God! I found myself asking for forgiveness of questioning but praying to Jesus for clarity. Within moments I had another vision of a couple children sitting on Jesus lap on the bus. I heard in my spirit him saying he was comforting them and then the vision of Jesus driving the bus as he said (in my spirit) ”I’m driving them home to be with me forever”.
I’m overwhelmed with happy tears just typing this at the beautiful reframing of a 25 year nightmare! I have to also add that I wrestled with guilt for a while as I came to serve on the team at WHI and not necessarily to be served. You see my prayer when the women’s team met was for more of Him and less of me; and my story to help others. Well God definitely was able to do immeasurably more than I could ever ask or imagine J When you asked me to come forward I felt peace which is totally God cause you know how I am with attention lol. Later God confirmed this was “for such a time as this” moment.
Monday when I went to work was beautiful too! Every time I saw a bus I could not only smile but found myself giggling through the tears of joy! The mind can truly be the battlefield; Jesus has taught me to surrender more than fight. To God be the Glory for this huge healing (a 25 year nightmare and a 19 year answered prayer).
But I’m also THANKFUL to you and please pass on to the entire team and Galilee Church and all the supporters of WHI- a HUGE THANK YOU! I am so humbled and thankful to be part of such a great team of the Welcome Home Initiative!
Healing the Wounds of War

Twenty-seven combat veterans sat in a circle at a small church in Virginia Beach, and I thought I had no business being there. I kept telling people I was going just to learn how to minister to veterans in my future ministry and that “maybe I’ll get something out of it myself.” Read more »
I wanted to take this opportunity to share my most sincere gratitude for the time you spent with my daughter Riley and I. Our healing began as soon as Riley was able to speak and share how she felt.
We appreciate your time, the prayers, and miraculous healing that we experienced during our visit and time together. You’re surrounded by a beautiful and supportive team and it was a pleasure to meet them and receive their blessings. It was an amazing reminder that we’re always watched over and cared for regardless of where we’re at on our journey and what we encounter. We are so blessed and I ask God to continue to shower you and your ministry with blessings, love and light.
Healing Service Prayer
I was invited by a friend last Tuesday night to come to the healing service at your church (Galilee). I really like the worship and preaching. As I sat in my seat, I really wanted to come up for prayer for me, but felt I needed to pray for my husband. After being anointed and prayed for by Fr. Nigel, I went to the three ladies on prayer team, that were standing on the right. I told the ladies that I wanted prayer for me, but really felt that the Lord wanted me to pray for my husband. I was grateful.
I asked for prayer for my hip that has giving me trouble since 2004 because of a car accident that I was in. In 2014, I fell at a store (that refuses to pay my medical bills-another prayer for another time) and my hip has been in severe pain since. Every day I was waking up in pain and had to wait until my leg/hip was "lubed".
After the ladies prayed for me, I was excited to see what the Lord was going to do.
(Another thing, I have not been able to sleep on my left side since 2004). Tuesday night into Wednesday morning was the first time that I have been able to sleep on my left side without pain. I woke up on Wednesday morning totally healed!!! I am praising the Lord! He is a good, good Father!!! I am also thanking him for this ministry and I pray many blessings upon it. Thank you for your faithfulness! May God bless you all abundantly!!
Can't wait till next month. Hoping to bring more people!
Awesome day on Saturday! Many thanks to you and all those who were involved in putting the day together. Nigel is just BRILLIANT! His messages will be with me for quite some time to come. Thank you!
I Brought Some Friends and They Loved It!
I was so impressed by the Healing Conference yesterday with the speaker: The Rev. Nigel Mumford. I can't really put my emotions into words but the Holy Spirit was there and moving and working. I brought some friends and they loved it!
I am believing for healing for my sister-in-law's fiancé who has PTS from combat (he was there yesterday) and for an elder from our church who came on a whim and was tremendously blessed. A woman purchased the Welcome Home Initiative for him and said God told her to buy it and give it to him. He was amazed!
It was a wonderful, wonderful day and I laughed heartily.
New Life Again in Christ Jesus!
Thank you for the great healing time and all the prayers at Shepherd of the Hills church Hernando, Florida.
We were blessed by your wisdom, sharing your personal experience, and the love of Jesus!
It's exciting to share the books and information with others so that they may be healed and experience peace.
I will always remember March 12, 2016, as the healing day of my past and of PTS. I have a new life again in Christ Jesus. "It's brilliant ! "
Thank you for your ministry!
God Bless you and your family.
For His Sake,
PS Thank you for recommending J. John- powerful evangelist and great testimony.
Deep Emotional Healing
My wife and I attended the 11/12/2015 Welcome Home retreat at Galilee Church. I've been able to cope with my PTS from Vietnam, but our friend D.J hasn't and so the only way we could get them to attend was to bring him and his wife, Jane to the retreat. D.J. is still a work in progress for our Lord, but Jane, his wife was able to receive deep emotional healing.
I just wanted to thank you, Sandra and Galilee Church for this spirit inspired ministry. I now have a pretty good idea, after entering Galilee Church on Saturday, after the retreat, what its going to be like to enter the gates of heaven.
Yours in Christ,
War Zone Veteran - Attended The Welcome Home Initiative #23
As I sit here at the computer typing this post in a pool of tears, I realize that we are in big trouble. Recently, I had a great opportunity to attend a healing conference with my lovely future bride Saprena Levy. The conference was specifically for combat veterans batteling PTSD. Ever since returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, I have quietly (and not so quietly at times) struggled with PTSD and the trauma associated with war. I had an experience at this conference that was like nothing I had ever experienced. During a prayer service, Saprena and I were annointed and covered in prayer. During this prayer the Holy Spirit filled my soul as the demons of war and trauma were given their eviction. The Holy Spirit told them that they had not paid their rent and that Jesus had paid it for me! There was a fierce battle from within as they left. After it was over I could feel the Armor Of God on me to prevent them from coming back. Thank you Jesus, Saprena, Nigel Mumford and By His Wounds Ministry!
I tell you this because it has become more apparent than ever that we are denying God in favor of the riches of the world. The world around us is falling apart because God is not at the center of it. When we put God at the center of our world, our country, our state, our relationships and our lives, we will prosper. Some of you may say “It’s too late for me”, or “God doesn’t want me”, or “I’m too bad for God”. I have good news for you, it’s not too late! Daniel 9:9 says "The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him”. Many of us decide to pray when we want something. We pray when the times get tough. Often during these prayers we are pleading for God’s mercy as we make false promises to God to “do right” if only he will help us during our time of need. We need to do a lot more listening instead of talking during our prayers. Pray daily and listen daily. We are so consumed with what God can do for us that we forget what we are to do for God! My Prayer for everyone this CHRISTMAS season is that God covers you in his saving grace and reveals himself to you. I was once broken too, until I opened my heart to him. All you have to do is open your heart and listen!
Retired Marine, Veteran of Two Tours in Vietnam
I am a former Marine who spent 26 years in the Corps, 13 years enlisted and 13 years an officer. My duties were varied, my MOS was 0311 (Infantryman) and 0202 (Intelligence Officer).
I attended the Welcome Home Initiative (WHI), at West Palm Beach Florida on July 16-18. I must say up front I was a “doubting Thomas”. I did not know what to expect or what was expected of me. I didn’t believe I had PTS but I did have some deep seated problems which I carried throughout my life. I carried these problems during my two tours in Vietnam (and I can honestly say God was watching over me each time I was wounded) and into other difficult situations. These problems would come up continuously and I would ask God to help me.
It was very hard for a grown man to open up in front of complete strangers, but I tell you, it was easier than I thought. I kept in mind that everyone present was in a similar situation as a result of combat operations, and all of us needed something or someone to help us heal.
Medical doctors can help heal our physical bodies and give us pills to that purpose; Psychiatrists help heal our minds and sometimes must dispense pills to help us in rough times. WHI helps us heal through the Holy Spirit by restoring our faith with the help of members who have attended the Welcome Home Initiative. We all have demons that haunt us as a result of combat action, (man’s inhumanity to man). It is hard to express in words, what kind of transformation takes place, but for me it was an experience I will not forget and a great relief off my shoulders. I could feel the Holy Spirit enter my mind and body, through the hands and prayers of those who were ministering to me. Each time I opened up and expressed my feelings, I would feel the love and concern, not only from the ministers present, but also from the other recipients in attendance. All this and much more was the result of my three days with the WHI.
I am 80 years old and no one should have to live in misery or be plagued by experiences from the past in combat, so I urge anyone with problems resulting from your combat experiences, including spouses, to very seriously consider attending a WHI. Let this wonderful program help you. I can guarantee that you will come out a better person. We all need God’s help to heal us, whether we know it or not.
In closing I would like to say, I am a better person for having accepted the invitation to attend the Welcome Home Initiative (WHI). In addition I thank the Lord for bringing new people into my life. God bless whoever reads this letter.
