"T. K.," as he was known, took charge of the Youngstown, Ohio, Mission in 1911 and was ordained a Mennonite minister in 1913 at the Midway congregation, Columbiana, Ohio. When he suddenly lost his voice in 1914, his physician advised a change of climate, so he went to La Junta, Colorado and six months later was joined there by his wife and children. In 1916 he pastored the Zion congregation at Bluffton, Ohio. On 16 August 1917 he and his family, together with the J. W. Shank family, left for mission work in Argentina under the Mennonite Board of Missions (Mennonite Church). T.
