Frank Family Emergency Fund

Over the weekend Keith and his wife Hannah, were both shot in the face with a C02 BB gun. The window of their van was also shot out with their 4 small children inside. The bullet is still lodged in Hannah's cheek and she will need to see a plastic surgeon to figure out removal. This is the account of the incident according to Keith Frank: 

"Yesterday as we loaded our kids into our van to go for a walk a boy was walking past us in the alley and shot me and Hannah both in the face with a CO2 BB gun, and also shot out the window of our van that our kids were in.
I chased him after he shot at us and the van, caught him and got his gun away and then brought him back to yell at him and to call the police. I made the mistake of treating him like a kid and trying to reason with him like a person. He pulled out a second gun and that’s when he shot us both in the face. I then caught him again, got the second gun away and held him until the police came.
Our kids are all good, none of them were hit. Hannah and I both went to the emergency room where we found out that both of us still had the bb’s inside of us.
They were able to to cut my wound open bigger, and squeeze the bb out.
Hannah’s tunneled 2 inches through her cheek. They had to make a different incision where it stopped. They dug, and dug, and dug but could not get it out. They said she would need to see a plastic surgeon.
So now we have to move. Which we are completely not financially ready for, and our house is completely not ready for selling.
But what choice do we have? We’ve lived here for almost 8 years, love our house, and our kids love the next door neighbors kids, but we can’t wait for one of us, or our kids to be killed or blinded/wounded for life.
Please be in prayer for us as we figure out a plan to move forward, and a timeline as well."

 Vehicle Repairs
