Sounds like you've got a major grading/drainage problem! Your easiest fix would be to remove some of the built-up ground around the house and ensure runoff is away from the house instead of towards it. If this is not possible, some sort of "French Drain" system will be necessary to collect the runoff.

It is very important not to allow the runoff to continue collecting under the house like that, since not only will this foster termite activity, but wood rot as well!

Best of luck and may God bless, Richard
