Indonesian, LDS leaders dine together
Deseret News 27Jan00 N1

LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley dined with Indonesian President Abdurrahman Wahid Thursday evening in Jakarta and presented him with a copy of the LDS Scriptures. With President Hinckley at the dinner were his wife Marjorie Hinckley and President Boyd K. Packer of the Council of the Twelve and his wife Donna.

During the dinner, which President Hinckley described as cordial, the men discussed Wahid's health and eyesight; Wahid was treated last year at the University of Utah Medical Center, and he met President Hinckley during a follow-up visit there.

President Hinckley is scheduled to meet members of the Church in Jakarta tomorrow. He started this trip with the dedication of the new LDS Temple in Kona, Hawaii, and has also visited 625 church members in Cairns, Australia and 1,500 people who met his plane in Tarawa, Kiribati, a small atoll in the Pacific ocean.
