Tatyana Galkevich, a peaceful resident of Smolensk, did not even suspect that her faith in God would become a reason for criminal prosecution. The investigation accuses her of praying and discussing the Bible with friends. As a result, the woman spent more than six months in jail for her faith.
Tatyana was born in the village of Bereznyaki, Smolensk region, in 1959. As a child, she was fond of sports and even jumped with a parachute, did handicrafts and loved to read. After school she graduated from a textile technical school and received a specialty as a knitwear production technologist. She worked as a knitter, was a shift master.
Now Tatyana lives in Smolensk and is on a well-deserved rest. In his free time he is engaged in gardening and vegetable garden. Since 1989 she has been married, a daughter was born in marriage.
Tatiana was in awe of God even before she came to know the Bible, but she knew nothing about the Creator. The knowledge gained from studying the Scriptures helped her to better understand them and encouraged her to live according to biblical standards.
Due to the criminal prosecution and imprisonment in the pre-trial detention center, where she spent several months, Tatyana’s chronic diseases worsened. In addition, she lost her job. Relatives who do not share her religious beliefs, as well as friends, try to support the woman morally, emotionally and physically.
