Eugene’s search for his father continues as he visits his foster parents to find clues.
Back in Odyssey, Eugene, hesitant to involve anyone else in his emotional roller coaster, continues the search for his father. Katrina convinces him that he should let Whit help him bear some of the burden of his search.
The only evidence Eugene has so far is a fax from Around the World Missions specifically asking for Eugene to go to Africa. It is signed with the initials L. M. and so Eugene believes that his father specifically wanted him to be there. However, the missions organization tells him otherwise...it was simple chance that Eugene ended up in the same village. Eugene begins to feel abandoned and must look elsewhere for evidence. His investigation takes him to visit his foster parents in hopes of uncovering clues about his father. But instead, Eugene learns about God's providence and how He gives us exactly what we need when we need it.

QuotesKatrina Meltsner: You called someone who almost has your dad's last name?
Eugene Meltsner: Am I smelling like desperation to you?
Katrina Meltsner: Either that or you need to take out the garbage.
Eugene Meltsner: That doesn't make any sense! My father just happened to send out a request that happened to come to his own son? How could there be such a coincidence?
John Whittaker: I never said it was a coincidence.
Eugene Meltsner: Yes, I know you don't believe in them. But—but this is too complicated to think about otherwise.
Frank Burnette: So... need anything? Wall Street Journal? Abacus?
