A Time for Action, Part 1
“A Time for Action, Part 1” is episode #594 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Nathan Hoobler, and originally aired on May 13, 2006.


Eugene discovers an old train ticket to Zaire hidden in a book belonging to his parents. He believes the ticket will lead him to answers regarding his parent's kidnapping and sets out to find the person who purchased it.


New twists emerge in Eugene's search for his father. Though he never doubts that prayer matters, Eugene is determined to act on any lead. A forgotten relative, a spy agency in Chicago and a tragic accident are all part of the deepening plot. As Eugene tries to find his father, Grady tries to help a homeless man by giving him everything.

Later, as Eugene finds out that when he was seven, his uncle went on a train to try to save his parents, but the train crashed and everyone on board died. Eugene tries to figure out how his uncle knew about his parents being captured. Eugene goes to his foster parents once again, asking them if they knew anything about his uncle. His foster mother said that his uncle came by right before he left. Eugene asks why and his foster mom says that he wanted to bring Eugenie along, but they decided against because they did not know where he was headed.

Whit gets the other fax from the Mission's Board and Eugene and Whit see that the number was erased from the one Eugene was sent and the number on the fax Whit was sent was a Connellsville number.

John Whittaker: I meant, what is your hunch?

Eugene Meltsner: So, we found that Michael died on that train in Africa.
Maddie Burnette: Oh my goodness! That's Terrible. All we knew is that it happened over seas.
Eugene Meltsner: And the State Department told you that?
Maddie Burnette: Yes. They didn't give much detail, but then again, we didn't ask for much. We barely knew Michael. Ar-are you sure you don't want something to eat?
John Whittaker: Oh, no. We ate on the way.
Eugene Meltsner: I'm really not hungry.
