Three members of a LDS stake presidency from Mesa, Arizona, participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. In addition to raising awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease), the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints extended a challenge to the youths of their congregation.
In the video posted on YouTube, the stake presidency discusses another kind of awareness.
"We also want to issue a second challenge to the youth to think about ALS in terms of 'Always Living Your Standards.' So on behalf of us, the stake presidency, we challenge all the youth in our stake to always live your standards," one of the stake presidency members said.
The video was posted Aug. 24 on the Hermosa Vista Stake YouTube channel.
