The Milsons - Crosslinks Mission Partners in Valencia, Spain
 Julian, Nicky, Jemima, Theo and Koda the chocolate Labrador

 “It is estimated that just 1% of the population in Spain are evangelical Christians. Although 75% of Spaniards identify as Roman Catholic, this may reflect a sense of cultural identity rather than personal faith.”
 
Julian and Nicky Milson are passionate about sharing the good news of Jesus with Spanish people and training up disciples who can advance the gospel for generations to come. As of March 2018 they have lived and worked in Valencia,  where Julian is seconded to the IERE (Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church). Julian is part of the ministry team at Iglesia de Jesucristo in Valencia and will soon begin to take on more responsibilities in the leadership of the church. 
 
Nicky’s primary ministry is to support Julian and look after their children, Jemima (12) and Theo (10). Jemima is home schooled by Nicky, and Theo has recently enrolled at The British School of Valencia. As Nicky becomes more fluent in Spanish she will serve the church family wherever her gifts can be used.
 
Before moving to Spain the Milsons lived in Hove where Julian was the vicar at Holy Cross Church for 11 years. Nicky served at Holy Cross in the children’s ministry, youth work and music. 
 
In Spain they are enjoying getting used to the Spanish way of life and becoming part of the local church community, as well as incorporating many new Spanish delicacies into their diets.
 
How you can support the Milsons:
 
Please pray:
  • For fruitful relationships with people they know outside of church (friends from school, language classes, the dog park!) and that they ultimately lead to God.
  • For Jemima and Theo’s on-going, day-to-day learning in different settings, that they would enjoy it and grow spiritually.
  • That the Milsons will continue to trust and rely on God and know that His love is endless.
  • That their upcoming appointment to gain residency with go smoothly despite the potential complications with Brexit.
