“THERE IS A TIME FOR
EVERYTHING...”

matthew and jessica belwood
summer newsletter

“...AND A SEASON FOR
EVERY ACTIVITY UNDER
T H E H E AV E N S : ”

ONE DECADE
CINCINNATI/NORTHERN KY
The last few months have been
extremely hectic with ministry during
the week and traveling on the
weekends to various locations. In this
newsletter, we’ll highlight a few of the
many things we have been doing. But
first, in any chaotic season of life, I’ve
had to remind myself to stop, take a
breath, and take a look around.
A while ago, I was asked to be the
graduation speaker at St. Rita School
for the Deaf. The timing was fitting in
several ways, which marked the end of
my 10th year of YFC Deaf Teen Quest
ministry in Cincinnat/Northern
Kentucky, and at St. Rita’s. While I
was preparing the speech, I had plenty
of opportunities to reflect and
reminisce on the various experiences
the last ten years. Initially, I couldn’t
believe ten years had passed. But it
was a time of growth and change, of

various seasons, each with it’s own
blessings.
I had chosen to devote the
commencement speech to the
concept of seasons. I thought it was
appropriate that the graduates
understood that their time in High
School wasn’t the first season of their
life that has been completed, nor will it
be the last. And I also wanted to make
sure that they knew each season had
its purpose and there will always be
the three “C’s” upon the beginning of
new seasons: Change, Challenges,
and Choices.
During the preparation, I thought of
the changes and challenges of various
seasons of my life, but also
remembered that my attitude in these
changes and challenges were my
choice, and mine alone. There were
times I embraced change and
accepted the challenge, and there wee

times I didn’t.
I ended with
Ecclesiastes 3, a special poem that
holds great significance to me
personally.
It was a fitting conclusion of sorts, and
after ten years in CIncinnati, we are
slowly transitioning to a new location in
Louisville, KY. It’s hard for me to leave
Cincinnati, a place so dear, but it’s the
right time, the right season to do this.
Louisville is the headquarters for Deaf
Teen Quest. The strategic location is
ideal for many reasons, one being for
our travels as we expand this ministry
to ensure it multiplies across the United
States and Internationally.
But this
transition is not only for ourselves;
though this ministry, we want to see
every Deaf Teenager make an informed
decision about Jesus Christ.
So begins a new season and a new
adventure...

A TIME TO BE BORN
AND A TIME TO DIE,
A TIME TO PLANT
AND A TIME TO
UPROOT,
A TIME TO KILL AND A
TIME TO HEAL,
A TIME TO TEAR
DOWN AND A TIME
TO BUILD,
A TIME TO WEEP AND
A TIME TO LAUGH,
A TIME TO MOURN
AND A TIME TO
DANCE,
A TIME TO SCATTER
STONES AND A TIME
TO GATHER THEM,
