Prisoners of Fear, Part 3

“Prisoners of Fear, Part 3” is episode #576 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Marshal Younger, and originally aired on October 22, 2005.


Eugene and Katrina's African adventure comes to a thrilling climax. Eugene discovers more about his parents and their connection to this isolated village. But the couple realizes that their true purpose on this mission is overcoming the lies that imprison their new friends in Africa.


Eugene Meltsner, Katrina Meltsner, and Yosef sit imprisoned in a cave. Katrina feels a breeze in the windowless cavern and together they find a tunnel. It appears that Leonard Meltsner tunneled his way out of prison and staged a cave-in, giving him time to escape into the jungle!

The trio use the tunnel to escape the cave. Eugene wants to continue his search for his father, but instead they head back to the village of the Ashantis. As they approach the dam, Gobir appears threatening them with a gun and refuses to let them cross. He confesses that he invented the curse to keep his village safe from the outside world. He installed motion sensors downriver that triggered the dam to break, sending massive waves towards anyone trying to cross. By letting Eugene and Katrina cross back to the village, everyone would discover his lie.

As Gobir is about to harm them, Yosef jumps out and tackles him. Eugene and Katrina run towards the village. Kwame sees Eugene, Katrina, and Gobir standing on the other side of the river and he wants to cross. To save his son, Gobir finally admits his lie. He later tells all of the villagers at Aman's insistence. Eugene and Katrina explain to Gobir that he should trust God with the protection of his village instead of trying to do it himself.

Eugene prepares to leave the village to search for his father. He doesn't find anything except for one clue. The person who sent the fax requesting someone to come to the Ashanti village was L.M. His father never forgot the Ashantis and they never forgot him.

Eugene Meltsner: That's the difference between our Gods Yosef. Mine is a God of hope and freedom. And my God could find a thimble in the middle of an African jungle. Finding a man is mere child's play.
Yosef: If your God is as determined as you are, I'm sure He could. But if He's that strong, He can also bring your father to you.

Kwame: Father there is no water.
Gobir: You're right. It should have come by now. What happened?

Katrina Meltsner: There's only one God. You should trust him with you life and the lives of your village.
