President Gordon B. Hinckley is one step closer to resuming his normal duties as leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Church officials said Friday that since his Jan. 31 release from the hospital, where he underwent a laparoscopic procedure, President Hinckley has held a meeting at his home with his counselors in the First Presidency.

Hinckley, 95, will continue to recuperate at his Salt Lake City home after his Jan. 24 surgery. Following a routine medical screening, a cancerous growth was removed from his large intestine.

His counselors, President Thomas S. Monson and President James E. Faust, handled his workload in his absence, as is customary when the president is indisposed.

No other details regarding President Hinckley's current health and recovery process have been released.
