One night, in Central Africa , I had worked hard to help a mother in the labor ward; but in spite of all that we could do, she died leaving us with a tiny, premature baby and a crying, two-year-old daughter. We would have difficulty keeping the baby alive. We had no incubator. We had no electricity to run an incubator, and no special feeding facilities. Although we lived on the equator, nights were often chilly with treacherous drafts. A student-midwife went for the box we had for such babies and for the cotton wool that the baby would be wrapped in. Another went to stoke up the fire and fill a hot water bottle. She came back shortly, in distress, to tell me that in filling the bottle, it had burst. Rubber perishes easily in tropical climates.

At least, that's according to one meme account on Twitter, which posted an image of two lifestyle influencers, declaring the start of the season. The latest Twitter trend began after a memer named Giovanni, 19, who uses the handle " lasagnabby," posted a three-year-old image of two influencers, Caitlin Covington and Emily Gemma. The tweet posted to Giovanni's account, lasagnabby, on Friday has gone viral, with nearly 13, retweets and more than 50, likes as of Wednesday, and spoofs the title of rapper Megan Thee Stallion's song "Hot Girl Summer. I literally googled 'fall scarf outfits' and 'cute church outfits' and saved the photos from there as memes," Giovanni, who declined to give his last name, told NBC News via Twitter messenger. Giovanni said he never expected the meme to be a viral success but awoke the next day to scores of new followers as well as direct messages from people thinking he was one of the women in the photo. Gemma, 31, who runs the blog The Sweetest Thing and is pictured on the left in the viral photo, said she was made aware of the meme on Sunday. As the meme grew, people began making their own jokes about the image, suggesting it looked like the women wanted to " speak to the manager " and smelled of pumpkin spice lattes. Some of the responses took a cruel turn, suggesting the women pictured were homophobic or racist, which Gemma said couldn't be further from the truth. Once Covington, 29, who runs the blog Southern Curls and Pearls , became aware of the meme, she retweeted it jokingly asking for credit.
The first time I heard about Hillsong was when my friend told me she'd visited a church that "wasn't really like a church". By that, she meant that Sunday mass usually involves a bunch of hot tattooed dudes playing Christian rock tunes, before everyone congregates outside for some free barbecue. From her description, it sounded suspiciously like the last night of an Evangelist summer camp, and not all that different from the kind of events those American mega-churches put on to celebrate the day that Jesus moved a rock from the entrance of a cave. But I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt, so I went along to check out the church for myself. When I arrived at Nalen, one of Stockholm's larger concert venues, I wasn't sure that I had the right address. Could the same club that regularly hosts lesbian nights and death metal shows really be home to a Sunday mass? Two hours later — walking out, covered in sweat and gripping a Bible, with a vague memory of accepting Jesus into my life — I understood completely; I had a better time in there than I've had at all the normal, non-Christian gigs I've ever been to. Hillsong was founded by Brian and Bobbi Houston in the early s in a suburban school hall on the outskirts of Sydney. Its teachings are based on the Bible and the church operates in 12 different countries, attracting thousands of visitors to their Sunday masses. It's currently one of the fastest growing churches in Sweden, with new members joining every week.
