Ghana, Togo, and the Gambia. Togo is as accurate as possible (did similar method as in PNG).
West Africa finally completed. (Hooray!). The accuracy of mapping Protestant denominations in this region is rather non-existant.
The UDI of Rhodesia apparently also appeared in churches... the majority are now Independent according to Joshua project:
In terms o religion, South Sudan and Kenya have apparently no relation to each other, whatsoever.
The Dominican map is inaccurate. The South should be a lot more Santero, the north coast more Protestant, the rest a syncretic mix between Catholicism and Santeria.
Cuba as well should be incredibly more Santero, especially in the East that on the map I believe is labeled as irreligious.
I thought the entire bible belt would be maroon. Surprising.
Dominican Republic: I listed ny source while colouring the country. I found a really rare map showing predominan ancestry by village. The major Afo-Diasporic religion, AFAIK is Vudu in DR.
As for Cuba, I used two sources. Scolbert08 to for the eastern border of Catholicism, and then a racial map of Cuba. Any "irreligious" but Afro majority village has been shown in Santeria.
It appears that if you see the foothills of the Rockies, you really pray to God more often
Predominant ancestry doesn't determine religion in the country because aside from Samana Americans, assimilation was incredibly fast and thorough into the general Catholicism/Vudu. There's very little difference between 21 Divisions and Santeria, both can be used more or less interchangeably.
South America: Brazil, Peru and Bolivia
I admit that I dont know much abot the region. Should you happen to edit that section of the map, you are more than welcome
Southern Cone done. South América almost finished, with exception of Gran Colombia.
Completing East Africa
Should someone find an ethnic map of Burundi, then the Tutsi are Lutherans and the Twa are animists.
Minor correction for Mexico: the Purepecha, Durango Aztecs and northern Tarasomething are pagan
Southeastern Africa: Mozambique, Malawi, Madagascar; as well as eSwatini and St. Helena islands. Added Catholicism in Zuid-Afrika, amongs the Venda, Ndebele, and Ronga.
And some additions in Scandinavia and Greece
So what remains to be done? Central Africa, Britain and Northern Ireland, Russia, Central Asia, China and Japan. And SE Asia.
Central Asia, census divisions. Should anyone wish to add more detail, they can use these sources:

My try at China. Source: https://www.businessinsider.com/new-religious-breakdown-in-china-14.
Regions shown as practising no religion or without data were categorized as "Confucian" except in Manchuria, where they were given Dongbei colour. Of course, this map is far from accuracy
