Pool lanai gutter overflowing and soffit dampness


During heavy rains my pool lanai guttering overflows and also leaks especially in the corner and joints,images below. On closer inspection I cannot see any water dripping out of the soffit area however due to my paranoia I attached some kitchen roll and noticed the center one being very damp after heavy rainfall others were dry.
My question is this rain coming down from further up then running down the truss, perhaps a leak in the roof somewhere else or would the overflowing lanai guttering cause this, I am thinking it could not be the overflowing gutter since water cannot travel up into the soffit, right?

A picture from further back would help.
