A subset of cells from BMA and cBMA was seeded onto plastic culture dishes in Dulbecco's Minimum Essential Media (DMEM) supplemented with 10% fetal bovine serum (Sigma-Aldrich, Saint Louis, MO), 2mM L-glutamine, and 1% penicillin/streptomycin in a humidified incubator (5% C[O.sub.2], 37[degrees]C).
The colony-forming unit fibroblast (CFU-F) assay was used as an indicator of progenitor cell content in BMA and cBMA, as described previously .

In spite of the dedicated participation and leadership of Filipino women in Baptist missions, women's ordination was not a major concern of the members of the CPBC or the CBMA during their formative years.
According to Filipino missions historian, Nestor Bunda, "His Board rejected the idea." (13) A year before Briggs's recommendation, eight male Filipino pastors had been ordained, but the board concluded that "women were not considered as fit for ordination."

(23) For example, examiners found that CBMA offered a number of programs with reduced costs and flexible underwriting standards to provide affordable housing loans to LMI families and in LMI communities throughout its Massachusetts assessment area.
