The Milsons - Crosslinks Mission Partners in Valencia, Spain
Julian, Nicky, Jemima and Theo
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, as Crosslinks Mission Partners. They have two children, Jemima (14) and Theo (12).
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 is seconded to the IERE (Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church) as the Rector of the 'Iglesia de Jesucristo’ which is the only church in Valencia that is part of the Anglican Communion. Nicky is involved in various areas of ministry in the church, is learning Spanish and homeschools Jemima.
Before moving to Spain, the Milson's lived in Hove where Julian was the vicar at Holy Cross Church for 11 years. Nicky served at Holy Cross in children’s ministry, youth work and music.
Prayer requests for the Milson family:
That they are able to travel back to the UK to visit mission partners this summer (note: they should arrive on Friday 3 June)
Please pray that their time in England would be fruitful and continue to build up partnerships with supporting churches, as well as also giving them opportunities to see family and friends and be refreshed
Prayer for Nicky’s conference in Oxford (mid July) that it will be an encouragement
Prayer for rest in a busy schedule visiting churches
Please pray for the church in Valencia and those attending over the summer, who will miss the Milsons. Please pray that the congregation would continue to meet and share fellowship
Give thanks that the whole family are well enough to travel after Julian and Nicky recently caught COVID
Give thanks that Theo has been able to choose GCSE courses he is excited about, and that Jemima continues to benefit from home schooling with Nicky - including recent projects on flowers and soap making!
