(ChurchLeaders) Karimy Jutila, the 23-year-old daughter of late children’s pastor Craig Jutila, was seriously injured in a vehicle collision last week while delivering supplies to California firefighters. According to online updates, Karimy is awaiting transport from Redding to Orange County, to a facility with a higher level of care that’s closer to the family’s home.
In December 2018, Craig Jutila, a beloved kidmin leader, died suddenly at age 53 after having a heart attack while snowboarding. Now the family is again asking for prayers—and receiving an outpouring of love and support online.
