Forshia Ross: the youngest Ham Radio Operator in Alaska who became Pastor

Forshia Ross with mikeAt the age of ten, Forshia Ross became the youngest ham radio Operator in the state of Alaska, where her family lived at the time.

Forshia remembers when she took the Morse code and radio theory exam to get her license; She was very perplexed by one question. She was sure the multiple-choice answers did not contain the right one from which she could choose. Finally, Forsha went to her instructor during the exam and shared it with him.

She was apparently right, and a letter of correction to the Federal Communications Commission accompanied her exam. As the local newspaper reported, “The young Miss passed her test in radio theory and the international Morse code with flying colors.” Forshia even built her own transmitter, a task that took one whole summer. Her father built the receiver; and when they tested them both, Forshia's worked fine, and his began to smoke. They had a good laugh about it, but Forshia was still very proud of herself.

Foshia also remembers going to a ham radio summer party, given for the benefit of all radio operators in Alaska, and asking if she could sign the roster that had been placed high up on a podium. The man she was asking looked down at her, smiled sweetly, and answered: “Honey, that’s for radio operators to sign.” Innocently, she looked up at him (everyone was taller than her, of course) and said, “But I am one.” Through this medium of communication, she would reach as far as Guam and many other places.

Forshia still has her logbook. She received fan mail from all over the world and was featured in the CQ Magazine, one of the most well known magazines for radio operators. When the Lord opened up ministry to Forshia Ross in 1990, never would she have believed that radio would continue to be so important. Only this time the purpose would be to share the Good News of Jesus Christ around the world.

Hidden Treasures radio program on EGR / IRRSForshia's radio program, Hidden Treasures has been aired on several stations in the United States, short wave in Africa and Northern and Southern America and in her own local area. God has given Forshia a unique ability to share the Gospel in practical ways that help people realize that He desires to be everyday real in their lives. She is often interviewed as a guest speaker on syndicated radio stations. Her audio CD, 18 Sound Bites, a collection of some of her best programs, continues to encourage people with God’s love and personal care. It has been her great pleasure to be invited to share the Good News with the European Gospel Radio ministry as well.

Forshia Ross is a licensed and ordained pastor and head of the international ministry Treasurers from the Heart, which started in 1990 on the outskirts of Washington DC. She fulfills the call of ministry to help people through television, radio, books, Bible studies, speaking engagements and her website, TreasuresFromTheHeart.org. Forshia has won two Rhode Island PEG Awards for Best Religious/Spirituality TV Program and has also published two books, No Secondhand Rose and The Wilderness Shall Blossom like the Rose, the first and second of a trilogy about her journey to wholeness. She lives with her husband, Eric, in Glendale, Rhode Island.
