What are the writers going to do about the situations the characters are now in? Will Connie ever go to college? Will Nick Mulligan ever become a Christian? -Submitted by John Anaya

Good question, John. As you probably know, Odyssey has a way of keeping its listeners in suspense, even about the future of characters' lives. Take Connie for instance. For years she has been trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life, but eventually comes back through the door of Whit's End and realizes that she's content with wiping tables and getting her hands soggy in the sink. Sinks aren't for everyone, but Connie definitely fits in with the plates. More questions arose when Connie was feeling nervous about her future in Malachi's Message, an episode about an "angel" that comes to Odyssey dishing out advice. She was wondering if she should attend college or not, but Malachi showed her otherwise. And now Connie works at both the Timothy Center and Whit's End, a large portion of her life spent as it is. Unless the AIO writers drop Connie's work at either function, I don't see that it's possible for Connie to go to college. Obviously there's the future. That's why we call it the "future." It's the vast unknown that only God knows. Personally, Connie doesn't seem like she'd fit into the college atmosphere, but it would make for some interesting aspects on the show if she did attend college.

 

As for Nick Mulligan, we've seen him in the past few years since he was introduced in Just Say Yes, titled appropriately for your question, John. Will Nick eventually say yes and accept Jesus as His Savior, the only way to Heaven? Since his character was introduced, we've seen that he is becoming open to Christians' morals. Although his motives may be far from finding God (IE: trying to hook up with Erica Colburn in Twisting Pathway), we have seen his curiosity. For example, in Leap of Faith, the Mulligan family's lives are in danger due to flooding. It's in this moment that Nick realizes that something is missing from his life and asks Mr. Mulligan to pray for God's protection. Even though he didn't make a decision for Christ and still hasn't, we can see that God is still there, tapping on his shoulder.
