MAN ON A MISSION: Going door to door in the line of work is not an easy job. Doing it as a missionary for the Mormons is especially hard, Brockton’s Norberto Teixeira said, with many people shutting the door in response.
“We’re doing God’s will,” said Teixeira, 24, a Cape Verdean national who until November 2014 will be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Arcadia, Calif. “Sometimes it is kind of hard. People may not want to listen. But it’s their choice to listen or not. We understand that.”
