LDS Church President Thomas S. Monson is in Hawaii to rededicate the Laie Hawaii Temple, which recently underwent extensive renovation and is to be dedicated on Sunday. On Saturday, he visited the refurbished temple, accompanied by his first counselor in the First Presidency, President Henry B. Eyring; Elder Quentin L. Cook of the Quorum of the Twelve; and Elder William R. Walker of the Seventy and executive director of the Temple Department. Sisters Kathleen Eyring and Mary Cook accompanied their husbands on the visit to the temple.

On Saturday evening, President Monson addressed the audience and performers prior to a cultural program held on the BYU-Hawaii campus.
